MY NEW BOOK: Six Kinds of Sky is available now from Cinco Puntos Press.


Dear Faithful Reader(s): the new one's out, and I really like it. I've always wanted a black cover, and this one's beautiful. We've been getting a bunch of positive reviews (one of them is reproduced, below). If you're curious, you can see 'em at Busy, busy days. I've recently been out to San Diego, doing a reading for UCSD. It was gruesome. Then off to Laramie, Wyo--near my beloved Front Range of the Rockies. I was fortunate enough to speak at the Sympsium for Social Justice at the U. And then a trip to Tucson for adventure and research on my next book. Rush back to Chitown for a reading at the NAACS conference. Whew! Next stop: Seattle. I'll be reading at Elliott Bay Books in May with my old pal, Ben Saenz. So if you're in the area, come by and see us. (May 11--for other dates, see the Calendar section.) After that, New York City, Colorado, San Diego, Tucson. Go, go go! Hope I see you out there. I'll keep you posted. As always, thank you for your interest and support. I remain... ever yrs., L
