Revisiting Season One of “A House of Our Own”

“A House of Our Own” is a literary review series created by Puerto Rican writer Brittany Torres Rivera. The series features book reviews with snippets of author interviews woven in. Season One was published on the original Letras Latinas Blog in 2022. Season Two launched on LLB2 in February 2023 and will be published bi-monthly through the end of the year. About the series, in the author’s own words:

“'A House of Our Own' is a love letter to Latinx literature. With an intersectional collection of writings, I hope to tease out the common narratives that tie each of us to Latinidad. This column will cover writings in different genres written by Latin American authors who either immigrated to the U.S. or are the descendants of those who did. With its limited scope of twelve books, this column is not my attempt to define Latinidad with any degree of certainty. Rather, I hope to piece these authors’ stories into a mosaic to which readers can relate, regardless of their cultural identity.”
