Luis Alberto Urrea

Another author website, this time for 2005 Pulitzer Prize finalist, novelist Luis Albero Urrea. Urrea’s books, including Across the Wire and, most recently The Hummingbird’s Daughter have won numerous awards. The website contains extensive biographical information, a bibliography, Urrea’s frequently updated blog that tends to focus on issues of Chicano identity in the United States, and a calendar of events. There is a page devoted to Santa Teresita de Cabora, who constitutes the focus of his most recent novel.

There is an excellent “Etc.” page listing links to resources on human rights organizations concerned with border issues, and music, book, publishing and writing information that Urrea finds relevant.

This is a useful website for librarians doing readers advisory, fans of Urrea’s work, and readers and browsers interested in issues related to the Mexican/US border and immigration.
