Author Talk: 'The Mango Bride' By Marivi Soliven

Banished by her wealthy Filipino family in Manila, Amparo Guerrero travels to Oakland, California, to forge a new life. Like Amparo, Beverly Obejas—an impoverished Filipina waitress—forsakes Manila and comes to Oakland as a mail-order bride. Their unexpected collision forces them both to make terrible choices and confront a life-changing secret. Palanca Award winner Marivi Soliven will be on hand to sign her books on October 29 from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.
