Rigoberto González is the author of four books of poetry, most recently UNPEOPLED EDEN, which won the Lambda Literary Award and the Lenore Marshall Prize from the Academy of American Poets. His ten books of prose include two bilingual children’s books, the three young adult novels in the Mariposa Club series, the novel CROSSING VINES, the story collection MEN WITHOUT BLISS, and three books of nonfiction, including BUTTERFLY BOY: MEMORIES OF A CHICANO MARIPOSA, which received the American Book Award from the Before Columbus Foundation. Currently, he is professor of English at Rutgers-Newark, the State University of New Jersey, and the inaugural Stan Rubin Distinguished Writer-in-Residence at the Rainier Writing Workshop. As of 2016, he serves as critic-at-large with the L.A. Times and sits on the Board of Trustees of the Association of Writers and Writing Programs (AWP).
