WHAT: 25th ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION FOR CINCO PUNTOS PRESS at the BEA
HOW: Beer & Mexican Cookies (aka Galletas)from Gussie's on Piedras Street
WHERE: Booth 4504, BOOK EXPOSITION OF AMERICA, Javits Center in the Consortium Aisle

WHO: BOBBY BYRD and JOHNNY BYRD will be your hosts, pouring beer, serving cookies, and talking the talk.
Yup, Cinco Puntos is celebrating 25 Years of publishing unique and interesting books. They (whoever they are—we’ve always wondered who they are) said it couldn’t be done—an independent press on the U.S./Mexico Border! But lucky for us. We discovered that publishing is like writing—truly an act of self-discovery. So there we were on the very edge of America, publishing great books with these unique ingredients—the magical city of El Paso, hard work, good friends in abundance and lots of good luck coming in our direction. Thanks to everyone who has supported us over the years!
