Description:

Texas native Stephanie Elizondo Griest returns to Texas State to read from her new work, All the Agents and Saints: Dispatches from the U.S. Borderlands. Working with Mohawks from the Akwesasne Nation, she began to see connections to her Texas homeland — the common tension and tragedy of lost lands, language, culture, and the loss of so many lives. In All the Agents and Saints, Ms. Griest reports on the search for justice and where it stands in the U.S. Borderlands. Join us as she "weaves seven years of stories into a meditation on the existential impact of international borderlines by illuminating the spaces between and the people who live there."
