GuerrillaReads No. 44: Melinda Palacio

Guerrilla reader Melinda Palacio writes award-winning poetry and prose, and she’s done journalism too. She says that her poetry training actually helps her as a novelist. In a recent interview, she said,

I went from writing journalism, reporting type of work, to getting deeper and deeper into language…  Poetry has influenced how I write longer pieces, and each word does matter.

Here, Palacio reads from her new novel, Ocotillo Dreams.
