Event Description

Speaker: John Ross

Author and activist John Ross has spent many years traveling and chronicling struggles for human rights in Mexico. He has written ten books of fiction and non-fiction. His latest volume “El Monstruo – Dread & Redemption in Mexico City”, a street-level peoples’ history of the most polluted, overcrowded, corrupt and crime-ridden megalopolis in the western world.

Covering 4,000,000,000 years of history from the primal broth that first spewed out the monster to the Aztec-Mexica oblivion through centuries of rapine and revolution all the way to the Great Swine Flu Panic of 2009, El Monstruo is a retelling of the story of Mexico City, with which Ross’s own history has become hopelessly entwined. Come join us for a presentation about the political times past and present in Mexico.
