Into the Beautiful North

Check out this YouTube video that promotes this soon to be released book.

LUIS ALBERTO URREA writes on his blog:

"We're having a pre-release party with (and for) our good friends at the Ragdale Foundation and La Casa Norte. If you're in the Chicago area, please come and celebrate with us. Good food, good friends and good causes! (And an early copy of the book before the official release date!)

I believe Ragdale is one of the most precious resources for writers and artists in the country and everyone involved with the Foundation is so passionate about the work they support. They've only recently introduced me to La Casa Norte and I'm hoping it is the beginning of a very fruitful relationship. I love what they are doing for at-risk youth and families.

For more information on the Ragdale Foundation, here, and for La Casa Norte, here.

Looking forward to seeing you there!"


The Ragdale Foundation has been a great ally of Letras Latinas and the Guild Complex. We (Letras Latinas and Ragdale) have an NEA grant proposal in that, if it prospers, will launch a new initiative for Latino and Latina poets who are also literary editors.
