Erika L. Sánchez on Storytelling

“It seems like the ideas kind of find me, and oftentimes it’s an image, just one word or one smell or one setting, and it just won’t leave me alone,” says Erika L. Sánchez about her writing process and how her family’s storytelling influenced her in this 2020 virtual event for the Speak On It series hosted by the Chicago Public Library. Sánchez’s memoir, Crying in the Bathroom (Viking, 2022), is featured in Page One in the July/August issue of Poets & Writers Magazine.
