EP 26: Stephanie Elizondo Griest Reading Series

This week on our Air Schooner Reading Series we listen to the first chapter of Stephanie Elizondo Griest's book, Mexican Enough: My Life Between the Borderlines read by the author. Griest is currently the 2012-2013 Viebranz Visiting Professor of Creative Writing at St. Lawrence University and an award winning journalist and travel writer. Her book, Mexican Enough, deals with reconciling her Mexican-ness and White-ness during travels throughout Mexico wherein she investigates the murder of a prominent gay activist, sneaks into prison to meet with resistance fighters, rallies with rebels in Oaxaca, and interviews scores of migrant workers and the families they were forced to leave behind.
