    Hosted by Cheech Marin, this documentary examines the work of several Hispanic- American writers and how their poems, short stories and novels reflect what it means and what it's like to grow up Hispanic in America. The authors profiled in the video discuss the influences on their writing (including the rich oral traditions of the Hispanic community), their creative methods, and the specific themes they explore.
