* NOW IN COLOR Book Launch: Continuing the Celebration! *

On November 2, Día de los Muertos, we were thrilled and grateful to have so many of you in attendance for a beautiful poetry reading. We also deeply appreciate having had special guest poets Juan Felipe Herrera, Sally Ball, and Alberto Ríos join in the celebration as well. If you were unable to attend, or if you’d like to listen in again, here’s a link to the recording on YouTube.

And, we’re continuing the celebration with an extended sale on Jackie’s book! Through the month of November, use the coupon code “November” at the Perugia Press bookshop to get 20% off of copies of NOW IN COLOR, for yourself or for a gift. The books will come with a bookplate signed by Jacqueline Balderrama. As always, when you buy books on our site anytime, 5% of the proceeds go to orgs that support the life and work of BIWOC

And please consider supporting all of our readers. You'll find links to our guest poets' books below their pictures. 
Thank you for your support of Perugia Press, small press publishing, poets, and poetry.
