We are pleased to feature an interview with Margarita Engle today! Engle's new book, Rima's Rebellion: Courage in a Time of Tyranny, is a coming-of-age story about women's right to vote in 1920s Cuba--and also explores questions of a child's legitimacy during that time, horses, the value of family, the promise of friendship, and the excitement of first love.
