Event Description

We’re kicking off June with a reading from Estela González! In her new novel Arribada, a terrible loss forces a Mexican family to reevaluate their lives.

Growing up in Mexico, Estela regularly visited her family in Mazatlán, where decades-long intensive development has led to the demise of beaches and sea turtle colonies. Her research and support of migrants on both sides of the border and fishermen protecting sea turtles in the Sea of Cortés deepen her reflections on environmental justice, race relations, and sexuality.

Her work is featured in the Barcelona Review, Best of Solstice Literary Magazine, Coal Hill Review, La Colmena, Feminine Rising (Cynren Press, 2019), Flash Frontier, Latino Book Review, Luvina, Revista Mexicana de Literatura Contemporánea, Sinister Wisdom, and Under the Volcano. Arribada was a 2019 finalist for the Feminist Press’s Louise Meriwether Award.

Jon us at 6pm, at our store on the corner of 12th and Pine.
