More books from 2011

by Rudy Ch. Garcia

In case you've already read most of the books from Manuel Ramos's La Bloga's Best Reads that was posted yesterday, and are wondering what else you might have missed from 2011, from Chicana scholar and librarian Maria Teresa Marquez, a precursor who inspired La Bloga, comes her own impressive list to complement Ramos's. It includes many of our favorites, some of which we reviewed this year. (To my knowledge, there is no significance to the order in which they're presented.)

Hers is entitled:

Thank you for bringing to my attention Jessica Helen Lopez's collection of poems. I've added it to Letras Latinas Blog's list of 2011 poetry titles.
