Local writer Sarah Cortez reads from her memoir Walking Home: Growing up Hispanic in Houston at today’s installment of the Lit Fuse reading series. Cortez, who grew up in the South MacGregor area and now resides in Montrose, is a winner of the PEN Texas literary award in poetry. ''What inspired me about the city of my youth was its great optimism and cleanliness,'' said Cortez via e-mail. ''Many soldiers came out of WWII ready to build a good life, and many like my father did so.'' Miah Arnold and Marc Phillips will also read from their works.
