Goodreads asked Kristine Ashton Gunnell:

What are you currently working on?

Kristine Ashton Gunnell I am currently researching a chapter for my new book, Charity in the City of Angels, which assesses the ways that women's benevolent activities foster a sense of community and facilitate their ability to claim public space. This week, I'm reading about Mexican women's charity groups in El Heraldo de Mexico, the Spanish newspaper in Los Angeles. So often, Mexicans are stereotyped as the objects of charity, but this research demonstrates that the Mexican ex-pat community in 1920s Los Angeles was a charitable resource, one that focused on giving as well as receiving.
