“If we forget ourselves, who will be left to remember us?” asks Cherríe Moraga in the prologue of “Native Country of the Heart.” Start your Sunday by journeying with three remarkable writers who delve into the politics of remembering. Learn about a visionary designer who disappeared from the Hollywood horror scene, thanks to a jealous male colleague; a Mexican-American mother whose eroding memory endangers a daughter’s connection to her roots; and—because “place” carries memory too—a region, the Napa Valley, whose reputation for lush vineyards and luxury homes eclipses its history of struggle.
