Pat Moraby Hal Marcovitz
As a young girl growing up in El Paso, Texas, Pat Mora felt as though she belonged to two worlds - the American culture of Texas and the Latino culture of Mexico. When her parents gave her a typewriter as an eighth-grade graduation gift, Mora started expressing her feelings through poetry. She went on to tell stories about the desert and her experience of biculturalism. Mora has also turned her talents toward writing books for young readers, in which she teaches valuable lessons about being different, the importance of reading, familial love, and the power of young girls and boys to excel and be leaders. Pat Mora offers valuable insight into the life and writing of an exceptional author who has become an important voice for multiculturalism.
