Transcript Arte Publico Press UH houses the largest publisher of American Hispanic literature in the Southwest When UH students walk through the basement of the M.D. Anderson Library, they might not notice a set of double doors labeled Arte Publico Press. Those doors lead to the largest publisher of American Hispanic Literature in the Southwest. Nicolas Kanellos, a literature professor at UH, brought Arte Publico with him to Houston from Indiana in 1980. 'We wanted a forum for Hispanic authors around the United States," said Kanellos. The press grew out of the success of Americas Review, a Hispanic literary and art magazine Kanellos founded in 1972. At the time, the magazine was entitled Revista Chican-Riquena. Arte Publico entered the literary mainstream with the 1991 publication of Victor Villasenor's Rain of Gold. 'Rain of Gold was a big step forward for us, because previous to that we had been doing avant garde work," said Kanellos. Rain of Gold is a non-fiction autobiography tracing both the maternal and paternal families of Villasenor through three generations from the Mexican Revolution to their eventual assunilation into American culture. Kanellos, the author of five books on Hispanic literature, has helped Arte Publico grow while using a staff of only 16 full-time and 14 part-time employees, many of whom are students. In addition to publishing books, Kanellos also puts out a free newsletter listing Hispanic events in Houston. He has also begun a nationwide project of collecting more than three centuries of North American Hispanic literature dating from colonial times to 1960. This "Recovery Project" is the largest of its kind, andhasbeengranted $20 million by the Rockefeller Foundation. While the material will be recorded on microfilm and CD-ROM, universities around the world plan to publish the information in textbooks and anthologies. "The aim of the project is to integrate Hispanic Literature in the curriculum of every grade level from kindergarten to graduate school," said Kanellos. Through Arte Publico, Kanellos hopes to support writers by fully developing their potential. 'We haven't made the impact we want to yet," he said. "I want to see our literature become an official part of the United States culture and identity."
