There’s a new anthology featuring Valley authors! The book, Along the River: An Anthology of Voices from the Rio Grande River, contains 60 original short stories and poems. It is edited by David Bowles, who works at Donna ISD and teaches classes at UTPA. Goodreads.com describes the book:
These unique voices combine in a harmony of Mexican and American, of magical and ordinary, of tragedy and triumph. From established writers to emerging talents, the contributors to this volume represent the depth and beauty of a community that is just beginning to make itself heard.
In another Valley-related literacy event, David Rice, author of Crazy Loco, will host a reading and book signing of his latest book, Heart Shaped Cookies and Other Stories. This will be Thursday, August 18, at Sekula Memorial Library in Edinburg. Call 956-383-6246 for more information and to RSVP.
