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.
