Margarita Ezcurra

Margarita Ezcurra was born and raised in Bolivia, during the turbulent period in South America. When she was a teenager her family sought political asylum in Argentina. There Margarita studied Literature in the Institute de Humanidades y Letras at the University of Tucumán and had her first experiences with teaching.

Shortly afterward Margarita married and began her family. In 1968 she moved with her family to the United States and started a new life. Margarita writes about these two worlds: her childhood, family, and memories of the turmoil in South America, and the joys of family and nature that she has found in the second part of her life.
