An interview with Danette Vigilante

Here is my interview with Danette Vigilante, as part of my Latino Stories series

Seeing Ourselves in Books: Teresa Dovalpage Interviews Danette Vigilante

I absolutely enjoyed her novel Tia Lugo Speak no Evil.

Some phrases that I just have to share:
“Books will always need to be safeguarded.”
Gram said she once saw the botanica referred to as the “Home Depot of spirituality.”
“But the truth is, you can’t buy magic or strength. Those things are inside all of us, and I won’t ever forget that.”

The novel is available on Amazon
