    • Thank you for reading and sharing. If you haven’t read Eduardo C. Corral’s collection Slow Lightning yet, I think you’d love it. The same goes for Ruben Quesada’s Next Extinct Mammal.

  1. Reblogged this on AlvaradoFrazier and commented:
    I’ve had ambivalent thoughts on any “heritage” month, mostly because I feel we should appreciate everyone’s heritage at every opportunity. On the other hand, by designating a ‘month’ there is a concentrated focus on a culture which does raise awareness of other heritages.
    So it is in the spirit of awareness, and increasing one’s knowledge of and appreciation for the written word, that I reblog this from Andrea Beltran, poet.
