Ray Gonzalez's new collection Beautiful Wall is one of four finalists for the 2016 Minnesota Book Award for Poetry!
Beautiful Wall, released by BOA last fall, is an exploration of life in the Southwest and Gonzalez’s Mexican ancestry and American childhood. The collection delves into the realities of life in an all-at-once beautiful and difficult place.
Gonzalez is a finalist among Star Tribune journalists, several previous award winners, and the state poet laureate, Joyce Sutphen. All category winners will be announced on April 16 at the Minnesota Book Awards gala in St. Paul.
