on Pan Dulce from Cinco Puntos Press

PAN DULCE is comprised of authors taking an in-depth look at each other’s work, talking about the process of putting their books together, and discussing writing life in general. Each episode will be hosted by a member of the Cinco Puntos team and pairs one of our authors with an author of a similar work from another independent publisher.

Amongst other topics, the authors talk about being from the Lower Valley area of El Paso, TX, and what it was like growing up as Mexican Americans and fronterizos
