Coming in October from Down & Out Books: ¡PA'QUE TU LO SEPAS! edited by Angel Luis Colón
By: Down & Out Books
About ¡PA'QUE TU LO SEPAS! …
On September 20th, 2017, Hurricane Maria made landfall on the island of Puerto Rico as a Category 4—a devastatingly powerful storm that left immense suffering in its wake.
The island still hasn't recovered completely; a victim of continued neglect and the continued efforts of many to demean and frame Puerto Ricans as "other" or "lesser" even though they are citizens of the United States.
Net proceeds from ¡Pa'Que Tu Lo Sepas! will benefit The Hispanic Federation: UNIDOS Disaster Relief & Recovery Program to Support Puerto Rico, a program working to help those still affected by the disaster and ensure continued safety in the face of continued weather-related events that can and will happen again.
With a foreword by editor Angel Luis Colón and 11 stories from veteran and newcomer Latinx authors who need to be on your radar, ¡Pa'Que Tu Lo Sepas! is a loud and proud celebration of Latinx writing, joy, trauma, and most of all, love.
