The latest title by UOG Press, "Dry Nights" by Pep Borja, will be available for pick-up and purchase at UOG Press and starting Saturday, Oct. 2. Borja will be at UOG Press from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. passing pre-signed copies of "Dry Nights."

The book features a collection of his writing that he describes as “reflections about what it’s like to be close to someone.” Dry Nights is unapologetic in its ambiguity, intrigue, and powerful imagery of intimate and often-taboo subjects, including heartbreak, addiction, sensuality, and suicide.

“If it makes readers feel uncomfortable, then for me, I feel like it did a good job,” Borja says. “That’s what poetry and art are supposed to do, they’re supposed to make you feel something.”
Pre-order our latest title, Dry Nights, by local poet Pep Borja for $12 on the Press’s website, uogpress.com, throughout September.

Recognizing that September is suicide awareness month, UOG Press will set aside $2 from every pre-order sale of the book for a suicide-prevention-through-expression project, which will solicit youth-generated stories and films about suicide.
