Crossing the Border: Launch Party Reading

CROSSING THE BORDER by Daniel A. Olivas

From award-winning fiction writer and book critic, Daniel A. Olivas, comes his first collection of poetry, Crossing the Border.

These narrative poems delve deeply into the many ways we cross borders of race, culture, language, religion, and privilege. With humor and pathos, Olivas draws from his own life and from the stories of others to serve as a witness to the great variety of experiences that make us human. With grace and eloquence, he invites readers to cross these borders with him on this intense but necessary journey.
