Visiting Writer’s Series – No Word for Welcome: The Mexican Village Face the Global Economy
Award winning author Wendy Call will talk about her book No Word for Welcome: The Mexican Village Face the Global Economy (Nebraska, 2011) starting at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 22 in the Regency Room of the UC.
No Word for Welcome received the Grub Street National Book Prize for Nonfiction.
Publishers Weekly said this of No Word for Welcome:
“Call is never dry or academic; rather, she writes lively narrative, detailed description, and engaging scenes that render her subjects – a schoolteacher, fisherman, activists-three-dimensional. By relating the lives and concerns of isthmus dwellers and the struggles they face, the author raises awareness of globalization’s effects on the village economy.”
