Gratitude

by Mark Chmiel

While Cafe Ventana was having its Tenacious Trivia Night, our Latin America Reading Group was discussing “I, Rigoberta Menchu” and life in Guatemala — what insight, connections, and sharing with Fatima Rhodes, Cindy (who’s from Guatemala), Mary (who has worked in Guatemala), Chelsea Jaeger (who has worked in Guatemala), Marilyn Lorenz (who translated for Rigoberta), Jean Abbott (who has worked in Guatemala and hosted Rigoberta in St. Louis), Maria Sennett, Kristen George, and Cheryl Sullivan, who brought delicious empanadas. Thanks to all!
