Braided [Un]Be-Longing is an intricately woven cultural journey across space and time. The debut poetry collection by Rosanna Alvarez offers a poetic glimpse into the collective excavation of journeying toward belonging and reads like a complicated love letter to community, family, and culture. A 2023 finalist for the International Latino Book Awards, the book has been honored with two awards: a silver medal for The Juan Felipe Herrera Best Poetry Book Award and a bronze medal for Best Cover Design. Hailed as "a poetic gem" and "a healing echo," the collection continues to spark conversations about our collective liberation.
