Redmond included in new anthology

April 17, 2008

LotuslandOne of our own, Sunbelt Publications editor-in-chief Jennifer Silva Redmond, is also an author of course. One of her latest stories can be enjoyed in the brand spanking new collection from Bilingual Press, Latinos in Lotusland: An Anthology of Contemporary Southern California Literature, edited by Daniel A. Olivas. She is joined by such other stellar contributors to the book as Kathleen Alcalá, Victorio Barraga, Rigoberto González, Luis Alberto Urrea, Richard Vásquez and Helena María Viramontes, among others.

If you’re in San Diego Cinco de Mayo weekend — Arriba y adelante! — be sure to drop by Somewhere Else Coffeehouse and Books in El Cajon on May 3rd, between 2-4 PM to pick up your copy and have both Jennifer and contributor Victorio Barragán sign it. You can also catch up with her and many of the other authors at the San Diego City Book Fair on Oct. 4th. (Yeah, a ways off but you gotta plan these things.)




  1. As editor of this wonderful anthology, I am delighted that Jennifer’s story is included. This book has been three years in the making and I had to make some tough choices. When the call for submissions went out in spring 2005, the response was almost overwhelming. I ended up with over 200,000 words of fiction. I ended up with about 115,000 words when I was done reviewing every piece submitted. This anthology includes 60 years of Los Angeles fiction by Latino/a writers. Congratulations to Jennifer and the other 33 writers in this book. I am honored to have my name associated with theirs.

  2. Good job, Daniel, am looking forward to the read. And what a terrific jacket!

  3. Just wanted to clarify that Jennifer will be joined on May 3rd by Victorio Barragán, not Victorio Barraga
