FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The Raving Press to Publish their latest book, a collection of bilingual poetry by a single author in more than ten years.
The book will be available beginning on November 26, 2021, to coincide with National Native American Heritage Day.
Mission, Texas, USA – November 19, 2021 – The Raving Press, a Rio Grande Valley independent book publishing press, will be publishing their first book of poetry by a single author in more than ten years. For over a decade, the publisher has been focused on poetry and prose anthologies covering the societal topics of our times. This newest publication will be a departure from that focus on anthologies to feature a renowned author of poetry, Xanath Caraza. The new book is titled Labios de Piedra (Lips of Stone) and is a fully bilingual – Spanish and English – publication.
Caraza is described in her bio as “a traveler, educator, poet, short story writer, and translator.” She writes for La Bloga, and Revista Literaria Monolito. Her various books have garnered recognition winning numerous awards, and they have been translated into English, Italian, Romanian, and Greek; and partially translated into Nahuatl, Portuguese, Hindi, and Turkish.
The description for Labios de Piedra is summarized as follows:
“Author Xanath Caraza leads the reader on a highly visual archeological dig across the strata of time and history in this poetic tour through the ethos of Mexico's ‘mother culture’: the Olmec civilization.”
To coincide with the theme of Native American history of this book, the book release is scheduled for November 26, 2021, which is National Native American Heritage Day.
The book will be available on paperback online and through the publisher's website.
