The Wandering Song
Tia Chucha Press’ latest book, The Wandering Song: Central American Writing in the United States, features some seventy poets, fiction writers, essayists, and memoirists in the first literary anthology of Central American writers of the diaspora. Edited by Leticia Hernández Linares, Rubén Martínez, and Héctor Tobar, this beautifully designed book should be part of every Ethnic Studies, Chicano Studies, Central American literature classes, and English literature classes at university, college, and high school levels. It features the work of writers like William Archila, William González, Javier Zamora, Maya Chinchilla, Jorge Tetl Argueta, Cynthia Guardado, and more with roots in El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Belize, and Panama. The book will be released April 15, 2017. We propose raising $5000 to promote this powerful anthology as widely as possible. This fund would help up hire a promotions person to reach institutions, libraries, and schools. Please give. Also ask others to give. No other book being published today promises to be as important in present-day U.S. arts and letters as The Wandering Song.
