In a mixed-genre presentation, Rubén Martínez takes us on a journey through the borderlands, and as far south as Argentina. Everywhere, he finds conflict and wounding in the human and natural realms. But he also finds resistance and aesthetic effervescence.

Los Angeles native, son of Mexican and Salvadorean immigrants, Rubén Martínez is an Emmy-award winning journalist and author of Crossing Over: A Mexican Family on the Migrant Trail, The New Americans: Seven Families Journey to Another Country , The Other Side:  Notes from the New L.A., Mexico City and Beyond and his latest book, Desert America: Boom and Bust in the New Old West.
