Throughout the month of October, El Paso Magazine will feature a series of videos, celebrating the El Paso authors featured in Literary El Paso ─ the latest installment of Texas Chritian University Press' outstanding Literary Cities series.

El Paso joins the ranks of Fort Worth, Dallas, and Austin with this anthology, set to be released Thursday.

Marcia Hatfield Daudistel, editor of Literary El Paso, told El Paso Magazine the book is a sample of a range of genres, including journalistic pieces, biography, autobiography, poetry, historical essays, fiction and nonfiction ─ all contributed by writers who have lived in and written about El Paso.
