Local Spotlight: Angelica Flores, Author of B Street

Angelica Flores, author of B Street, shares her stories of growing up in Southeast Stockton, California

Storytelling can be a personal experience for the writer as well as for the reader. I enjoy reading B Street because in a way the stories take me back into my own memories.

Follow @BStreet209 for a look at life growing up in Southeast Stockton, California through the eyes of a Xicana.

La Cultura Cura Pero Tambien Daña: Why I Did Not Learn How To Cook made me laugh at first because I can totally relate to not learning how to cook growing up. Then reading through the story made me think of how symbolic teaching a young Latina to cook can be.

Angelica has a good eye for photos. Some of the photos from Kennedy Park in her story, Gophers and Cracked Benches, Oh My!, caught my eye. Her images on social media capture a story in themselves.
