Borderlands/La Frontera: The New Mestiza. Celebrate this foundational text with each sip from our limited edition Borderlands mug.
Now sold exclusively in black.
In 1982, Ronald Reagan was president, 51% of Americans thought homosexuality was abnormal, and a little press that would become Aunt Lute Books was just getting started.
A full generation later, we are still publishing work by and for women usually ignored by traditional publishing—and keeping each work in print. To celebrate our 30th anniversary, we are now running a series of features that will bring our older, yet pressingly relevant, texts into the spotlight.

Aunt Lute celebrates the 25th anniversary of Gloria Anzaldúa’s groundbreaking Borderlands/La Frontera: The New Mestiza.
Anzaldúa’s Borderlands/La Frontera set a benchmark in the definition of Chicana feminist scholarship that clearly resonates throughout our field, including in the structure—the form—of the conversations we stage, not just in what we publish but also in how we publish it.
