For the love of reading
Once again, it is time to settle in with the annual Writing Contest issue of Pasatiempo. Inside, you will find 21 winning submissions by writers ages ten through eighty-four, who have penned their thoughts on joy, sorrow, love, loss, and nearly every emotion in between. These pieces were chosen from a pool of more than 200 entries from local folks, as well as some from around New Mexico and even out of state. The issue is illustrated with photographs from the book Voyagers, a collection of images of people reading, curated by Melissa Catanese (The Ice Plant, 2018).
