Aunt Lute family,
Once again the year comes to a close, and we are ever thankful for your continued love and support. Looking back at all we've done, we know we couldn't have done it without you.
We put on not one, but two Home in the Bay events, which provided much needed community medicine. We celebrated 40 years of Aunt Lute through interviews, newsletters and culminating in the powerful anniversary reading in October. 2022 also saw the release of Borderlands/La Frontera: The New Mestiza, Fifth Edition! Plus so many new things happening here behind-the-scenes.
Looking ahead, we can't wait to share more with you on our upcoming titles, events and partnerships. But that'll have to wait until next year.
From all of us,
The Aunt Lute Team

Is there a dish that makes you think of them? Adapt a recipe you love in their honor by tweaking a few things (or if you're really feeling it, you could make something original) and write it out in a note for them. Extra love if you are able to make them the dish!

We so appreciate every single donation we got this year. It's been crucial in helping us stay afloat.
We were aiming high and wanted to raise $40,000 by Giving Tuesday, but that date has come and gone and we have yet to hit our goal. The cost of doing our work keeps going up, and funding avenues we've used in the past are dwindling.
If you can donate even $5, we would greatly appreciate your support to help us keep going.
