Literary Arts Spring 2024

David Borofka & Deb Lapp- January 25, 2024

David Borofka and Deb Lapp are both former Reedley College English faculty members. In The End of Good Intentions, David Borofka examines the gap between desire and emptiness, conviction and extremism, those who believe absolutely in the certitude of their perspective, and those who live on the outer margins of doubt and uncertainty. Deb Lapp, with more than 100 color photos, tells the story of her life in the houses she's called home, demonstrating the importance of architecture in our everyday lives. 

Javier Zamora- March 14, 2024 

Javier Zamora was born in El Salvador in 1990. His father fled the country when he was one, and his mother when he was about to turn five. The U.S.-funded Salvadoran Civil War caused both parents' migrations. Javier migrated through Guatemala, Mexico, and the Sonoran Desert when he was nine. His debut poetry collection, Unaccompanied, explores the impact of the war and immigration on his family. Zamora has been a Stegner Fellow at Stanford and a Radcliffe Fellow at Harvard and holds National Endowment for the Arts and the Poetry Foundation fellowships.
