Red Salmon Arts PresentsThe Possibilities of Mud:  A Reading and Book Signing with Poet Joe Jiménez 
7 pm Saturday, 9 August 2014 Joe Jiménez is the 2012 recipient of the Alfredo Cisneros del Moral Poetry Prize and holds an MFA in Creative Writing from Antioch University Los Angeles. Jiménez is the author of The Possibilities of Mud (Korima Press, 2014). He lives in San Antonio, Texas. For more information, visit joejimenez.netThe Possibilities of Mud roots down in the Texas Gulf. In league with the deer of the arroyos and the heron like the pelican and the dunlin, Jiménez makes stays of the other Gulf animals of the mud-flat world, holds, in a time of grief. The cattle egret is a golden life as much as she is white— each creature: a lesson in how to let the world be enough. For Jiménez, as sanderling is to speaker, crane is to reader. These poems touch the world not to take from it but to know it, to belong to it more fully. There is the long song of grief, and there’s praise, too. At once in mourning and in worship, he’s said his beloved is the larger body of the world, where we hear Mary Oliver, and in his narrative movements, there is Mark Doty. As Jiménez renders the violent end to a long relationship, he makes notations for a praise song, prayers toward how to go on.

We welcome you to join us for our bimonthly Café Libro!Please, come read a poem, sing a song, or sit back and enjoy the night with us and our fantastic featured poets. 
**** Jorge Antonio Renaud is a gifted poet and writer who graduated from the University of Texas at Austin in 2012 with an M.S.S.W. He has written extensively about the nexus of minority issues and criminal justice in essays for various journals and op-eds for the Hispanic Link Weekly Report. Jorge is also the author of Behind the walls: A guide for families and friends of Texas prison inmates. He is a frequent guest lecturer on conditions of confinement at both the University of Texas School of Education and the LBJ School of Public Affairs. His interest in criminal justice extends to juvenile justice, and he has facilitated creative writing workshops for at-risk youth as a member of Save Our Youth, and for youth in detention facilities and those certified as adults and incarcerated in the Texas prison system as a member of Sending Solidarity. He is on the board of the Texas Jail Project, as well as a proud member of the Texas Inmate Family Association and of the volunteer cadre at the Inside Books Project, which sends literature to Texas prisoners. As a Texas Criminal Justice Coalition (TCJC) Policy Analyst, Jorge is critical to the research and development of various administrative and legislative policies at both the state and county levels, with a special emphasis on the adult system. Jorge also facilitates TCJC’s inmate correspondence program, addressing concerns and requests for information by inmates and their family members. His work is driven by the belief that American incarceration policies are too punitive and costly, both to human dignity and to limited economic resources, leading to practices that devastate generations and communities. Come out for snacks and warm feelings. This project is funded and supported in part by a grant from the Texas Commission on the Arts and the City of Austin through the Cultural Arts Division believing an investment in the Arts is an investment in Austin’s future.

Red Salmon Arts PresentsThe Ones Santa Anna Sold:  A Reading and Book Signing with Raquel Valle-Sentíes According to Carmen Tafolla, “ ‘The Ones Santa Anna Sold’ is an enchanting immersion into the world of borderlands Laredo, where Valle-Sentíes captures the taste, the emotion, and the irony of a world between worlds, between nations, between cultures, and often, pineapple and chile, the scent of jasmine and desert nopal, the beauty and harshness of Laredo’s streets and skies, and a sense of the magic and the bittersweet reality of our contemporary world, where the good, the bad, and the ugly co-exist along both sides of a murky borderland river. A magical experience!” Valle-Sentíes’ poetry has been published in numerous anthologies in the U.S., Mexico, and India including Floricanto Sí, Penguin Putnam Inc.; Red Hot Salsa, Henry Holt & Co.; Voices in First Person, Atheneum Books; Ventana Abierta, & Cruzando Puentes, University of California; Puentes, Texas A&M University; Yapichantra, Bijoygarh, Kolkata, India; Cantar de Espejos, UNAM, México, D.F. and in Fuentes textbooks for Spanish students. Valle-Sentíes’ first collection of poetry, “Soy Como Soy y Que,” was published in 1996 and won the international Premio de Literatura José Fuentes Mares in Letras Chicanas from the Universidad Autónoma de Ciudad Juarez, México.
