Crucified River is a bilingual collection of poems  that depict movement and the vicissitudes of life on the border. The ever-changing borderland serves as an inspiration to the author. The writing is the conscience and soul of the border.
Dr. Irasema Coronado, co-author of Fronteras No Mas: Toward Social Justice at the U.S.- Mexico Border.
 
Among the Mariposas
Chapbook
Price: $7.00
 
by Katherine Hoerth
Chapbook, stapled, soft cover
Cover Art by Michael Finacune
 
In Among the Mariposas, Katherine Hoerth emerges as an authentic new poetic voice in the Rio Grande Valley. She is both an insider and outsider in this predominantly Mexican-American region, embracing the local culture even as she feels edgy about her place within it. Her poetry holds up a mirror to the lyrical beauty of the Tex-Mex border and the muddy waters that run through it. The smell of tortillas and the juice of watermelons fill these pages with the vibrancy of life!--Steven P. Schneider, Unexpected Guests and Borderlines: Drawing Border Lives
 
In these sensitive and sensory poems of experience and witness, Katherine Hoerth writes of “being only halfway / there”– halfway between the home of the past and the home of the present, halfway between the culture of the borderlands and striving to “blend” and “belong.” Neither here nor there, the poet is not afraid to write with an emotional honesty that is also perceptive of economic disparities: “the barn called city hall,” “a virgin’s veil of colonias,” and “children who / grow numb long / before they grow / tall.” These are the borderlands of hope and walls, and giving up at times, but not “say[ing] goodbye.”--Emmy Perez, Solstice
 
 
 
Elisa's Hunger
Chapbook
Price: $7.00

by Carolina Monsiváis
Chapbook, stapled, soft cover
44 pages
 
In Elisa's Hunger, tongues unfold across generations as Monsivais' elegant honesties bring us bruises and nooses, yes, but also a balance of fruits and prayers and vivacious surprise---Cantinflas in grandma's garden, for one!  Coiled around a remembered (and partly imagined) abuelita who, beyond her lipstick and pomegranate-wisdom, knows her way around litigation and dirty talk, these poems light the way for us as we look for the physical and spiritual threads that bind us to each other in our familia humana. Mistranslations become threshold moments where humiliation and alienation open out to the broader possibilities of metaphoric redemption.--María Meléndez, Flexible Bones and How Long She’ll Last in This World

by Josie Mixon
Chapbook, stapled, soft cover
41 pages
 
The poetry that Josie shares is real and relevant. She brings words to life and gives them legs to walk through the doors of your heart to see past situations appear right before your eyes. Her ability to encourage while pulling on the heart strings is incredible.  I recommend her work to all poetry lovers, as well as, those needing freedom from their past.--Chris Cannon, Winning back our Boys.
