Merchasin, a lover of Mexico, moved to Mexico in 2006 “to realize the dream of living in a magical place where it is only possible to understand a small part of what happens every day.” Her essays are reflections on the culture and life of Mexico, the great heart of this country, and its wonderful people. They are tales told with wit, humor and insight.
Merchasin will be reading two short essays from her book, both related to the complicated issues of poverty in Mexico.
In “How Juan Pablo Got Hot Water, or Small Things Make Big Differences,” Merchasin shares a view into the struggle of Mexico’s working poor to provide a better life for their families, and how a small amount of money makes all the difference.
In “Burros and Bricks,” she explores a Rotary project that changed the life of the poorest of the poor.
