Ana-Christina Acosta Gaspar de Alba
A dual citizen of Mexico and the U.S., I was raised bilingual and have lived everywhere from Juarez, Chihuahua, to Indianapolis, Indiana. I received my B.A. from Indiana University in Latino Studies and English with a concentration in creative writing, and I am particularly interested in literary techniques of short story interconnectedness, border writing, and narrative code-switching. There are many authors and books I admire and cherish, but those that have changed my life are Little Women, In the Time of the Butterflies, “Cathedral”, “A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings”, and the works of Alice Monro and Junot Diaz.
