The first page of Esperanza Rising starts with the year 1924. Then, the first chapter, entitled “Las Uvas (Grapes)” says our actual story begins six years later. What year would that be? What was happening in the world at that time? Do a little research in your school library, online, and by asking parents/guardians about this period in history. Write a brief summary of important events that happened during that time period.
