Librotraficante issue is up at Drunken Boat

Goodness, this issue is STUNNING. Go read it now. Bonus: some of these pieces feature audio recordings.

My loneliness is the biggest soul in the room.

– from “All Artworks are Riddles” by Carmen Giménez Smith

And here’s an interview with Lupe Méndez by Erin Wilcox, co-editors for the Drunken Boat folio. Key words: “Put the word out there…”

I’ve written about the Librotraficante movement before when they opened up an underground library at the main branch of the YWCA here in El Paso.
