It is filled with contributions from dozens of influential and vibrant literary voices from around the country.

Donna Miscolta is the author of three books of fiction. Living Color: Angie Rubio Stories (September 2020) was hailed by Washington State Book Award winner Sharma Shields as “fiction at its very best: intimate, universal, historical, and relevant as hell to our current era.”

All net profits of the book will be donated to the Book Industry Charitable Foundation (Binc) to help booksellers hit hard by the pandemic. 

The book is available for purchase from Third Place Books.
