4th Period English
by Judith Arcana
Judith Arcana's acclaimed book of poems examining immigration through the voices of high school students talking and arguing about law, racism, ethnicity, language, nations and borders.

"These poems are amazing. Judith Arcana’s collection brings to life a whole population in a typical American high school. Her own strong voice disappears as she seemingly channels Adelita and Vicente, Tiffany and Jason, teachers and tíos, parents and visiting profesores. The stories that emerge here are vulnerable, confused, angry, outraged, tender, and, above all, deeply human." —Diana Rico

The Tramp Printers

The Tramp Printers
Forgotten Trails of the Travelling Typographers
by Charles Overbeck

The tramp printer was a typesetting troubadour with a story in lieu of a song, a scholarly hobo, and a master of the type case. They lived without belongings, without homes, and without romantic entanglements, traveling freely despite the hardships of the road. Many were brilliant, literate individuals who were nevertheless possessed by a predilection for bacchanalian debauchery. They helped each other over the hard places and spread the craft of printing along the way.

Flights of the Anarcho-Surrealist Imagination

Imagine anarchy and surrealism as an avian body in flight! The anarchist wing yearns to fly to high that it demands the impossible, while the surrealist wing breaks the binary chains that imprison our minds in a sedentary dichotomy between dream and reality...
