Thanks for your patience with the hiatus; one of this groups' moderator's lives was momentarily taken over by an apartment hunt. Now that that's over, let's pick up where we left off with the classic (1987) category-defying work of queer nonfiction by Gloria Alzadua, Borderlands/La Frontera: The New Mestiza.


In the words of its publisher, "Rooted in Gloria Anzaldas experience as a Chicana, a lesbian, an activist, and a writer, the essays and poems in this volume profoundly challenged, and continue to challenge, how we think about identity. Borderlands/La Frontera remaps our understanding of what a border is, presenting it not as a simple divide between here and there, us and them, but as a psychic, social, and cultural terrain that we inhabit, and that inhabits all of us."

How to find us:We will almost certainly be in the back part of the cafe, past the men's restroom.
