New Mexico Voices, Too is the second book in the series to honor New Mexico and to give writers the chance to express themselves. This book is mostly about New Mexicans but things can also be human in nature like the Sandia mountains. Poetry, historical essays, and essays about mentors, family and friends are all part of the mix. These essays and poems — by seventeen New Mexico authors — are on all subjects and give the reader a wide range of ideas and topics. This is a project of the New Mexico Book Co-op, a collaborative organization designed to help its 1,400 members join together in their love for the printed word. The New Mexico Book Co-op has novelists, poets, history writers, children’s writers, comic book writers, bloggers, consultants, booksellers, readers, and others who strive to share their knowledge about the book in this changing world. Collectively, Co-op members want to showcase New Mexico’s long history with book publishing. Books still make a difference and these essays and poems show how important people can be in the lives of New Mexicans.
