CityLit Press Announces Publication of Rafael Alvarez's New Fiction Collection

CityLit Press is pleased to announce the forthcoming publication of Rafael Alvarez's new fiction collection, Basilio Boullosa Stars in the Fountain of Highlandtown.

Join us for a special launch event at the Creative Alliance on Monday, September 18, at 7pm. The program will feature author Rafael Alvarez, Guggenheim Fellow Deborah Rudacille, and CityLit Press publisher Gregg Wilhelm.

From the link above you have the option to purchase general public or CA member tickets (price includes a copy of the book and lite fare).

The book commemorates the 20th anniversary of Alvarez's fiction debut, The Fountain of Highlandtown. Spend the evening immersed in the heart of Alvarez's east Baltimore "Holy Land," at the very place that graces the new book's jacket.

James McBride, National Book Award winner for The Good Lord Bird, describes Alvarez's book as "stories from the treasure chest of one of America’s most talented scribes.”
