Paper Birds: Feather by Feather / P jaros de papel: Pluma por pluma is a bilingual poetry collection, in English and Spanish, by the recipient of the Tom's Rivera Book Award Sonia Guti rrez, with translations by Francisco Bustos.


"Sonia Guti rrez's poems dive into the blue/turquoise feathers of life along the border, within the cultural waves of Raza tumult and celebration; her poems strike the bone like drumsticks. These poems pat the heart like a mother's loving hand, lock arms with sisters and brothers like a fellow guerillista, she sings from the blood like the ocean waves the shore, she spirals her poetic magic until transformation occurs, and we are changed-bravo "

-Jimmy Santiago Baca, author of No Enemies: Poems


"Sonia Guti rrez writes visceral, magical poems of power and grace. She speaks to legacies, homage, and justice. The Spanglish translations weave beautifully with the English into a tapestry of important questions for our country and our time. Paper Birds: Feather by Feather is a gift of necessary heat, music, and ultimately, joy."

-Lee Herrick, Poet Laureate of California and author of Scar and Flower
