Along the River 2

On November 7, VAO Publishing released Along the River 2: More Voices from the Río Grande. Edited by David Bowles and with a cover designed by painter Noé Vela, Along the River features poetry and prose by a host of local talent.

This volume is the second in a series of annual anthologies that provide a forum for the unique vision of regional writers. Proceeds from its sale will be used by Valley Artistic Outreach to continue providing art camps for children and promoting artistic expression throughout the Valley.

Description: Thirty-nine voices mingle like the currents of the great river, flowing into deep narrative resacas and rushing from lyrical reservoirs. Just as the Río Grande wends its way through basins, bosques, deserts, fields—so these poems, stories and essays explore the variegated quiltwork of border culture, streaming somberly through the darkness and coruscating in the light.
