Item description for Connecting Lines: New Poetry from Mexico by Luis Cortes Bargallo...

Through a partnership to promote wider access to literary voices of Mexican artists in the United States and American writers in Mexico, the National Endowment for the Arts, the United States Embassy in Mexico, and Mexico's National Fund for Culture and the Arts have joined together to support a proposed three-year program of anthology publication and public outreach activities. In the first year, Sarabande has been named publisher of the poetry anthologies.

"We are pleased to introduce readers to the best of contemporary Mexican and American poetry through these comprehensive bilingual anthologies," states National Endowment for the Arts Chairman Dana Gioia. "I believe they will quickly become essential volumes for poetry lovers and grant new insight into both cultures."

Contributors include: David Huerta, Alberto Blanco, Coral Bracho, Ricardo Castillo, Vicente Quirarte, Rafael Vargas, Alicia Garcia Bergua, Fabio Morbito, Silvia Tomasa Rivera, Myriam Moscona, and more.
