unnamed-4Stories That Must Not Die takes us back to the days of telling ghost stories over a campfire, or listening to your grandparents share traditional folktales as they drink their evening cafecito with pan dulce.  Stories such as ‘The Handsome Stranger,’ ‘Don Pedrito Jaramillo,’ and ‘La Llorona’ explore the age-old themes of vanity, greed, desperation, loss, and hope.
“The reason these are called stories that must not die is because they are slowly disappearing,” said Arredondo. “These stories are not only important to our culture, but remind us of daily valuable lessons of our society. They must live on, just as it is important for our culture to keep living.”
