Dallas Institute of Humanities and Culture will present a conversation between Alfredo Corchado and The Dallas Morning News’ Tom Huang about the epicenter of our homelands, the border. Corchado will also be signing his latest book, Homelands: Four Friends, Two Countries, and the Fate of the Great Mexican-American Migration, just released in Spanish and English paperback versions.

According to Corchado, the border is not just a geographical place, but a mindset. It’s not a no-man’s land overrun by criminals in need of a wall to separate us from them. For millions it’s a dynamic, vibrant place surrounded by some of the safest communities anywhere; it’s also a piñata for politicians. Whether from the standpoint of demographics or economic integration, the border is a peek into the future.
