Reading Together 2012 Blog

Luis Alberto Urrea

While we are excited about featuring one of Luis Alberto Urreas works of fiction as the 2012 Reading Together title, you might be interested to know he has also written poetry and nonfiction.  Here is a list of all of his published works, including the upcoming release, Queen of America (Nov. 2011).








Its clear from even a quick glance at these titles that Urreas work is strongly influenced by his own life experiences living and working near the U. S./Mexico border. Ive recently enjoyed reading some of these earlier works. I urge you to explore as much of Urreas body of work as you can. Youll find yourself with an even greater appreciation for the roots which inspired the writing of our Reading Together selection.
