La Cosecha 2009: Tim Tingle and Cactus Mary Fountaine

Cinco Puntos Press is delighted to be sponsoring Tim Tingle this week at the 14th Annual La Cosecha Dual Language Conference (11/18-11/21) in Albuquerque. Tim's performance will be 11:10 to 12-30 Friday November 20th in the Cochiti room of the Albuquerque Convention Center. The tentative for his talk and performances is "Indians Do Walk on Water," a reference to his award-winning Crossing Bok Chitto. He will be signing books at our booth before and after his performance. Our representative this year will be the one and only Cactus Mary Fountaine, who not only works at CPP but also finds time to run her own hand-made soap-making business.

Other speakers at the event will be Alma Flor Alda, Isabel Campoy, Stanley and Yolanda Lucero and many others. There will also be a special showing of the award-winning film Speaking in Tongues. If you are an educator in the area, please drop by and see what's happening in education as we learn to enjoy our diverse world of peoples and languages.
