Michele Serros

An award-winning poet and commentator for National Public Radio (Morning Edition, Weekend All Things Considered), Michele Serros has released a spoken-word CD on Mercury Records and toured nationally with Lollapalooza as a Road Poet, reading her work to stadium crowds of 25,000+. She was selected by the Getty Research Institute and the Poetry Society of America to have her poetry placed on MTA buses throughout Los Angeles County and has been a featured contributor for the Los Angeles Times' children's fiction section. Serros' new collection of fiction, How to be a Chicana Role Model, (Riverhead Books) was published in July 2000, and instantly reached the Los Angeles Times bestseller list. She was recently named by Newsweek as "one of the top young women to watch for in the new century." Michele spent 2002 living in Los Angeles and writing for the ABC television sitcom, The George Lopez Show. "An opportunity," she says, "that hopefully with my contribution opens the door for a wider representation of Latinos in the mass media."
