An evening with Luis Alberto Urrea: a benefit for No More Deaths


Luis Alberto Urrea, critically acclaimed author of The Devil’s Highway and sixteen other books, is a Tucson favorite son. Widely thought of as a “border writer” because of his cross-cultural experience and focus, Urrea says he is “more interested in bridges than borders.” The event’s dialogue will be moderated by Ernesto Portillo Jr., editor of La Estrella de Tucsón and columnist for the Arizona Daily Star. A limited number of tickets are available.
