EPCC Co-Author and Editor’s book earns Southwest Book Award

The book Cutting the Wire: Photographs and Poetry from the U.S. Mexico Border written by Lawrence Welsh, El Paso Community College (EPCC) Professor of English, with co-authors, Ray Gonzalez and Bruce Berman, edited by Lisa McNiel, EPCC Professor of Speech received the Southwest Book Award, sponsored by the Border Regional Library Association (BRLA).

“I’m just speechless.” Co-author and EPCC Professor Lawrence Welsh said, “I’ve dreamed of this since moving to the Southwest permanently 25 years ago. Over the years, I’ve remained grateful and thrilled that I’ve been able to work with the UNMP. It’s a top highlight of my life. I’m also thrilled to call El Paso my home.”

A collaboration between El Paso photographer Bruce Berman and poets Ray Gonzalez and Lawrence Welsh, the book, according to critics and reviews, “offers readers a way to look at the everyday realities of the border between Mexico and the United States – detention centers, Smeltertown cemeteries and kids playing along a river levee.”

The BRLA recently held a banquet for awardees and contributors at Ardovino’s Desert Crossing.

According to critics and reviews, the multilayered histories of the border landscape provide an inexhaustible supply of rich and fertile raw material for the book’s three authors.

The University of New Mexico Press published the book in 2018, and it can be purchased from their website.

Lawrence Welsh, El Paso Community College (EPCC) Professor of English, with co-authors, Ray Gonzalez and Bruce Berman, were named finalist for the 2019 New Mexico-Arizona Book Award.

The University of New Mexico Press published Cutting the Wire: Photographs and Poetry from the U.S. Mexico Border.

Welsh and Gonzalez’s poetry blends wonderfully with Berman’s visual investigations of the everyday realities of the border – detention centers, Smeltertown cemeteries and kids playing along a river levee.

According to critics and reviews, the multilayered histories of the border landscape provide an inexhaustible supply of rich and fertile raw material for the book’s three authors.

In February, the Pima County Library System in Arizona named the book a 2018 Southwest Book of the Year.
