Episode Description
A virtuoso performance by Sabine R. Ulibarrí, one of New Mexico's most acclaimed authors. We learn of Ulibarrí’s upbringing in northern New Mexico and how that influenced his writings. With a deep resonant voice, Ulibarrí reads some of his finest poetry and folktales. He is passionate about his Hispanic heritage: grandmothers smoking cigars and magical horses are a background to his overall concept of democracy and the need of respect between cultures. "Sabine Ulibarrí is a true romantic. His stories come from the heart, and are inspired by the people and places he experienced growing up in northern New Mexico. His bilingual editions provide a living mosaic of New Mexican life for all readers. He dedicates his work to the people about whom the books are written…"
