Into the Beautiful North
Luis Alberto Urrea
This event has expired

(Always Call to Verify Dates & Times)
   Hailed by NPR as a “literary badass” and a “master storyteller with a rock and roll heart,” Luis Alberto Urrea is the author of numerous books of fiction, nonfiction and poetry. Born in Tijuana to a Mexican father and American mother, Urrea uses his dual culture to explore greater themes of love, loss and triumph. A gifted storyteller, he has received an American Book Award for his memoir Nobody's Son and was a Pulitzer Prize finalist for The Devil’s Highway, among many accolades. Urrea’s bestselling novel Into the Beautiful North, the UCSB Reads 2017 selection, follows a young woman on a memorable quest to define herself without borders.
   "Luis Alberto Urrea is one of the foremost chroniclers of the border between the United States and Mexico... he has sympathetically and imaginatively documented the lives of unknown Mexicans crossing into America and the agents charged with stopping them.” The Washington Post
