Book Read: "The Devil's Highway: A True Story"

Friday, September 21, 2018 - 4:30pm to 6:00pm

 

Join the Notre Dame campus community in reading and discussing The Devil's Highway: A True Story. In May 2001, a group of men attempted to cross the border into the desert of southern Arizona, through the deadliest region of the continent, a place called the Devil’s Highway. Fathers and sons, brothers and strangers, entered a desert so harsh and desolate that even the Border Patrol is afraid to travel through it. Of the 26 who undertook the journey only twelve came back out. Published in 2004, Luis Alberto Urrea tells the story of this modern odyssey. Readers will discuss its relevance in 2018.

A limited number of books will be available free at the Center for Social Concerns to those who will commit to joining the discussion groups on September 21, 2018 from 4:30–6:00 p.m. Details and sign ups will be available soon.

The book read is sponsored by the Center for Social Concerns in advance of the lecture by author Luis Alberto Urrea on October 2, 2018 at 5:00 p..m in the  McKenna Hall Auditorium. The lecture is sponsored by the Institute for Latino Studies, Department of Political Science, and others.
