Transcript This alter at Lawndale's El Dia de los Muertos celebration is a tribute to Elvis Presley. Photo by Mark Lacy. Arte Publico sets standards in the U.S. The UH-sponsered Arte Publico Press was named one of four finalists in the Boston Globe Small Press Grand Prize. Nicola Kanellos, UH professor of Hispanic and classical languages, said the Press is the largest publisher of Hispanic literature in the United States. The Press was created because "there are no other avenues for U.S. Hispanic Authors to be published in the U.S.," he said. "The main commercial publishing establishment ignores the literature, ignores the writers." Founded in 1980, Arte Publico publishes a quarterly literary magazine called The Americas Review. Located in the base ment of the M.D. Anderson Library, it publishes about 20 books yearly. The Americas Review received the Citation for Achievement from the Coordinating Council of Library Magazines in 1986 and 1987 and is the only magazine to win two years in a row. Kanellos said with a grant from the Ford Foundation, the Press intends to publish ten plays over the next two years. Almost all of the works are published in English and ten of Arte Publico's books are standard college textbooks, he said. 44We are aimed at making Hispanic literature and Hispanic culture part of the overall cultural fabric of the United States so that it contains its rightful place in the American conscious," he said. A recent success is the selling of 30 of its stories to the Norton Anthology of American Literature and the Norton Anthology of World Literature, Kanellos said. 4'Another index of our success is that with our very small proportional budget we are able to get our books into the review spaces that are usually reserved for the big spenders in the publishing business." said Kanellos. The Press has five books coming out in October, including a fictional story and a book of poetry by Houston Hispanic authors. ► Beth Johnson Hispanic Arts ■ 47
