Look Inside



Pat Mora is the winner of the Southwest Book Award for Borders and for her first book of desert incantations, Chants. In Borders, the El Paso native explores borders – political, cultural, social, emotional – that divide people, forming their individual identities while also challenging the very concept of society. As a poet who brings two cultures, two traditions, two languages and nations together, Mora holds a positive, a sane position on an otherwise divisive topic.
