"The Cafe" by Guadalupe Garcia McCall

The Poetry Friday Anthology for Middle School continues to reach new readers. At the YALSA Symposium (Young Adult Library Services Association), poet Guadalupe Garcia McCall read one of her poems from the book and we managed to capture it on film here. It's "The Café" featured in the Eighth Grade section, Week 13: Families, page 205. 

Brace yourself. 
It's bittersweet and thought-provoking (and somewhat autobiographical).
