Don't pass up the chance to savor this poignant and comic celebration of a family. Carmen Agra Deedy, an exceptional storyteller, dramatizes the unforgettable characters of her childhood in Havana and Decatur, Georgia: the magical Peanut Man, Tia Coralia and her special Rice Pudding, the symbol of an enduring marriage in Bending Steel, and Mami's memorable day in Traffic Court.
