Schneiders Conclude Summer Book Tour with Reading from Borderlines at Revelations July 31st

Steven and Reefka Schneider will conclude their summer book tour with a reading and signing from their new book Borderlines: Drawing Border Lives at Revelations at 8 p.m. on Saturday July 31st. Admission is free.

Borderlines brings together images and stories in an aesthetically beautiful series of bilingual poems and drawings that portrays the people of the borderlands as they are seldom seen, peeling back the layers of fear and mistrust to reveal a rich and vibrant culture.

Steven and Reefka have given readings on their summer book tour at The Twig in San Antonio, Texas, Borders in Saratoga Springs, New York, Bookworks and Pachamama Gallery in Albquerque and Santa Fe, New Mexico, and Prairie Lights in Iowa City. They have been invited to present this fall at the Texas Book Festival in Austin and the Miami Book Fair International in Miami, Florida. You can follow the couple’s progress at
