Melinda Palacio, awarding-winning poet, will read from her debut novel, Ocotillo Dreams.

Based on the author's own real-life experiences living in Chandler, AZ, during the infamous 1997 migrant sweeps - an era and topic undeniably and newly relevant today, Ocotillo Dreams is infused with provocative questions about identity, immigration and the undocumented community. It also transcends the political to merge with the personal, exploring mother-daughter relationships, as Palacio lost her own mother at roughly the same age as Isola, the central character.

A 2007 PEN Center USA Emerging Voices Fellow, Palacio coedits Ink Byte magazine and writes a column for La Bloga online.
