˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜

In the Summer of 2009, thirty students came together to form the first Barrio Writers chapter in Santa Ana, California, a non-profit reading and writing program that aims to empower teens through creative writing, higher education and cultural arts. The first edition BW Book was published in June 2010.

Since then, five summers have passed, four summers of youth works have been released & now more students have been published in the 5th Edition Barrio Writers, A Collection of Works by Teens for Teens, Teachers & Our Communities.

**Join us for a book signing & live reading by Barrio Writers in Austin from 2013**

The students featured in the book have attended various surrounding schools in Austin, TX & Orange County, CA. Please join us in supporting our youth and showing the world that regardless of the obstacles and stereotypes placed on our teens, they find a way to have a voice and teach us all life lessons!

This event is co-hosted by Resistencia Bookstore, Center of Mexican American Studies at UT at Austin, The Nettie Lee Benson Latin American Collection, Teresa Lozano Long Institute of Latin American Studies (LLILAS), & Raspa Magazine - we appreciate their community partnership in the arts & support for our youth.

Sponsors are needed for snacks & beverages, if interested email barriowriters@gmail.com or visit our website for program details: www.barriowriters.org.

 Sometimes I feel like the only reason you are being given to care about the characters in these comics is because other characters do, and the whole thing can feel like being at a party where you are witnessing conversations between people you don’t know as they talk about other people you don’t know, feeling stuck while you wait for a friend to arrive.

Back before I had my Damascene conversion about Jaime’s work, I wrote a scathing review of Locas for The Comics Journal. (Laugh in the face of anyone who ever tells you that publication, online or in print, is a Fantagraphics mouthpiece.) I wrote something very similar, the sense that if you don’t cotton to Maggie and Hopey immediately, there’s something about not just the reception of the work by its fans but about the work itself that feels exclusionary. Really interesting phenomenon, and ultimately I would guess it’s a testament to Jaime’s ability to capture the way scenes and cliques form, and feel.

The title pages are indeed tremendous, too, yeah.
