By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, UT – Luis Urrea tells the powerful story of his legendary great aunt, Teresita.

Urrea talked to Doug Fabrizio last year about his novel The Hummingbird's Daughter, and the author is in Salt Lake City again this week as part of the Great Salt Lake Book Festival. (Rebroadcast)
