Folsom Lockdown

 by Melinda Palacio

Chosen for its high poetic quality, courageous and consistent voice, the way it developed a sense of place through the poet's family experiences and relationships, and the depth of feeling and strong sense of the person behind the words.

"Folsom Lockdown is that rare literary song that jars the heart, the memories, the pains, as well as what's good in all of us."

Luis J. Rodriguez,

Founder/Editor of Tia Chucha Press
