UPDATED: VAO Publishing will be officially releasing the second volume of its Along the River anthology series on November 18, 2012. The launch party and award ceremony will take place on that date at the Dustin Michael Sekula Memorial Library in Edinburg. There will be music and art on tap as well as readings by contributors. The ceremony itself will get underway at 2 pm, but we encourage everyone to arrive closer to 1:30 pm to pick up a copy of the book and socialize with the authors. Light refreshments will be provided.
On June 30, VAO Publishing will launch its new bilingual title Mexican Bestiary at Carino’s in McAllen, TX. The event will last from 1 pm to 3 pm and will feature talks/readings by the authors, a raffle of original artwork from the book, art activities for kids, and great food. Books will of course be on sale, with free t-shirts given out to lucky attendees.
