Lorna Dee's New Chapbook - Latina Letters Conference Exclusive

My new chapbook, Y la tierra no se los olvidó/ And the Earth Did Not Forget Them, from Wings Press will be available next week exclusively to attendees of the Latina Letters Conference (as there will only be 100 copies available). It includes the first 2 poems in a pentych of 5 long poems, "Bananas" and "Coffee" in new & revised forms.

These poems will also be included in my pentych of 5 books bound into one hard-bound collection: DRIVE: The First Quartet, currently in-press at Wings Press and debuting at a presentation at the National Museum of Women In the Arts, Oct. 14, in Washington, D.C.

I'd love to see some of you there next week — along with Sandra Cisneros, Alicia Gaspar de Alba, Pat Mora, Ana Menéndez, Lourdes Portillo, Carolina Montsaváis & a young poet I'm really looking forward to hearing, Ariel Rebolledo (a mujer I selected as one of the "scholarship gals" to attend my workshop retreat in Mexico, Taller Ixchel, free of charge w/ housing, but she couldn't make it; I can't wait to hear her new work & buy the new book.)

So, here's to a hot time in a hot town, celebrating 30 years of Latina Literature and 10 Years of the Latina Letters Conference/ Daughters of the Fifth Sun—sigue!

I will be in Washington, D.C. that week-end for a conference at the Library of Congress. What time will the book launch be? Is it open to the public? Will you be there?

I can't believe you edited "Bananas". How exciting. Maybe they'll run another batch of the chapbooks?
