“Crossing the Border” gets launched at Avenue 50 Studio…and it was lovely

On Saturday, Avenue 50 Studio in collaboration with Regal House Publishing/Pact Press launched my debut poetry collection, Crossing the Border: Collected Poems. It was a lovely event curated by the talented and indefatigable Jessica Ceballos. The audience was warm and engaged (they asked great questions during the Q&A), and the setting was perfect. If you couldn’t make it, here are a few photos from the evening. Also, Avenue 50 Studio has signed copies of my book, so if you visit this wonderful cultural space, just ask. And while you’re there, spend some time enjoying the beautiful artwork on display, some of which is available for purchase.

Jessica Ceballos offering introductory remarks.


Family members offering support before the reading.

Special guests, artists Eloy Torrez and Juliane Blackmann.


Avenue 50 Studio is an arts presentation organization grounded in Latina/o culture, visual arts, and the Northeast Los Angeles Community, that seeks to bridge cultures through artistic expression, using content-driven art to educate and to stimulate intercultural understanding. Please show your support by visiting and, if you can, purchasing art and/or making a tax-deductible donation.

CONGRATULATIONS ON THIS NEW BOOK, DANIEL. I'd hoped to attend and am sorry I missed it. Thanks for these photos and follow-up. I will definitely get my hands on a copy and look forward to reading this. Best wishes to you!
