Wednesday, July 31 - Dagoberto Gilb of Huizache

Tonight on Bibliocracy Radio 8 PM on KPFK 90.7 FM in Southern California:  Dagoberto Gilb, co-founder of HUIZACHE, a new literary journal.  Yes, the arrival of a new lit mag is a happy enough occasion but one founded with a particular vision, arguably a political one, and a cultural critique, and a mission, by a writer whose own struggles and successes have made him both militant and generous?  I must be talking about Huizache and its founder, literary lion Dagoberto Gilb.  He’s the much-acclaimed prize-winning novelist and short story writer whose work has appeared in Harpers and the New Yorker, and in eight books, including Woodcuts of Women and, most recently, Before the End, After the Beginning. Sponsored by CentroVictoria, the first two issues of Huizache, with contributors from Lorna Dee Cervantes, Gary Soto, Margaret Randall and Naomi Shihab Nye (as well as newer names) are still available, and you can subscribe to this important new journal – with its third issue on the way - at its website, here:
