We are thrilled to announce that A Desert Feast by Carolyn Niethammer and A Good Map of All Things by Alberto Álvaro Ríos were chosen as top picks for the 2021 Southwest Books of the Year! Additionally, The Saguaro Cactus by David Yetman, Alberto Burquez, Kevin Hultine, and Michael Sanderson, was included in Gregory McNamee’s Southwest Books of the Year picks.
Southwest Books of the Year considers titles published during the calendar year that are about Southwest subjects, or are set in the Southwest.
The Southwest Books of the Year panel of reviewers—subject specialists and voracious consumers of Southwest literature all—are pleased to offer up their personal favorite titles of the year, complete with brief reviews to whet your appetite and leave you wanting more. Books selected by two or more panelists become Southwest Books of the Year Top Picks. Their choices are published in our annual publication, Southwest Books of the Year.
Congratulations to our wonderful authors!
