Aunt Lute Books is excited to again share our most recent release, the critical edition of Borderlands/La Frontera: The New Mestiza, written by Gloria Anzaldúa, edited by Ricardo F. Vivancos-Pérez and Norma Cantú. Featuring an afterword by scholar AnaLouise Keating, this conclusive exploration into the iconic text that changed the course of Chicanx, queer, and feminist theory breathes new life into the themes still present in today’s political and social climate.

Free or Low-Cost Gift ideas


We do our best to price our books as affordably as possible while covering our costs, but we understand that financial burden can be a barrier. We have compiled a few ideas that offer alternatives!

  • POOR Press offers sliding scale prices on their publications, which include Poverty Scholarship, How to Not Call the Po'lice Ever, and Po' People's Survival Guide thru COVID 19 and the Virus of Poverty.

  • Write a song or a poem to or about them. Bonus points if you can sing it or read it to them!

  • 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 hope you enjoy this holiday gift guide and if you do use any of these ideas, please tag us on our social media!

Happy Holidays!
