Monday, April 20th Prairie Bay

For Francisco Cantú, the border is in the blood: his mother, a park ranger and daughter of a Mexican immigrant, raised him in the scrublands of the Southwest. Driven to understand the hard realities of the landscape he loves, Cantú joins the Border Patrol. He and his partners learn to track other humans under blistering sun and through frigid nights. They haul in the dead and deliver to detention those they find alive. Plagued by a growing awareness of his complicity in a dehumanizing enterprise, he abandons the Patrol for civilian life. But when an immigrant friend travels to Mexico to visit his dying mother and does not return, Cantú discovers that the border has migrated with him, and now he must know the full extent of the violence it wreaks, on both sides of the line.

In the event we can not meet as a group - we will discuss online on the Books Burgers and Brews Facebook page.  
Any costs for food sign up would be refunded. 

Pick up your copy of this book today at the Brainerd Public Library front desk by asking for the Books, Burgers, and Brews once the title has been selected.  The books at the library are first come first serve and we have 25 copies set aside for this event.  Participants that use the library for the book selection are asked to return the book once they have completed reading so someone else will be able to check the title out. Other options are listing to the book on audio, or purchasing on line.

 

Please RSVP for this event as space is limited.
