¡Juventud! Growing up on the Border is an anthology of Young Adult short stories and poetry written by award-winning authors for Hispanic youth. Edited by René Saldaña, Jr., and Erika Garza-Johnson, the collection is slated for a March 10 release.
Book Description: Borders are magical places, and growing up on a border, crossing and recrossing that space where this becomes that, creates a very special sort of person, one in whom multiple cultures, languages, identities and truths mingle in powerful ways. In these eight stories and sixteen poems, a wide range of authors explore issues that confront young people along the US-Mexico border, helping their unique voices to be heard and never ignored.
¡Juventud! features the work of David Rice, Xavier Garza, Jan Seale, Guadalupe García McCall, Diana Gonzales Bertrand, and many others.
