“Tears for Llorona,” a new play written by Patricia Santos Marcantonio, debuted on the stage of the Twin Falls Center for the Arts on Nov. 4 and 5.
The play is a first for Marcantonio, who is a partner in Other Bunch Press. The play is based on one of Marcantonio’s short stories that is included in “Voices From the Snake River Plain.” The play is a retelling of an old Mexican ghost story but with a new twist. It was produced by Carolyn White and the Magic Valley Arts Council, and was directed by James Haycock. The play also featured an all-Latino cast.
We are pleased to announce that you can now find our book, Voices from the Snake River Plain, at the Herrett Center Store on the College of Southern Idaho campus. Stop by and check it out!
You’ll find our book, “Voices From the Snake River Plain” on sale at Moose Hill Home Decor & Gifts, 830 Blue Lakes Blvd. N. (It’s down from Hastings).
It is a lovely shop.

The publishing world is changing daily, it seems, and there’s a lot of interest in the area of non-traditional forms of publishing. As “Writers Working for Writers,” the Idaho Writer’s Guild is proudly launching a new series called “Random Readings” on Saturday, January 30th from 1-3 pm at The Cabin, in Boise. Featured writers will share their experiences, from writing to publishing.
Here’s what you can look forward to: authors will read from their books, with commentary. Afterwards, there will be time for asking questions and sharing thoughts about the nuts and bolts of a variety of publishing processes. Not-to-be-missed refreshments will be served.
Southern Idaho residents Bonnie Dodge, Dixie Thomas Reale and Patricia Santos Marcantonio wrote and published “Voices from the Snake River Plain.” A collection of short stories, poems and essays, the book has been described as “a small treasure….we learn there is beauty in the landscape around us and people with stories to tell.” Some of the tales by these award-winning writers include a jackalope, an old Mexican ghost story, haunting landscapes and a road trip with Louis L’Amour and Zane Grey.
Val Robertson was the former president of The Couer du Bois Chapter of Romance Writers of America, and the founding and current president of the Popular Fiction Association of Idaho, which produces the Murder in the Grove mystery conference. She is also the organizer of the Boise Speculative Fiction writer’s support group. Her debut novel is entitled “Blade’s Edge.”
Also from Boise, Ken McConnell is both traditionally published and self-published. A Software Test Technician, Ken wrote and published “Starstrikers” in 2008. His first novel is “a military space novel that takes place between two galactic civilizations.” He also wrote “Null Pointer,” a mystery novel about a programmer sleuth.
“Random Readings” will take place in the Jean Wilson Reading Room, on the basement level at The Cabin, 801 S. Capitol Blvd, Boise. Admission is free. For further information contact Diane Graham at firstname.lastname@example.org.
