8/17/07: Border Crossers and a New America

Salt Lake City, UT – Writer and journalist Charles Bowden traveled some 7,000 miles documenting the experience of the thousands of illegal immigrants who make their way across the border of the southern United States. It's a dark portrait, but also humane and completely honest. On Friday, we're rebroadcasting Doug's conversation with Bowden about his conclusion that illegal immigration has become an issue beyond the reach of power and will.

Charles Bowden will be speaking and signing books at Ken Sanders Rare Books on Friday, Sept. 28 at 7 p.m. as part of the bookstore's 10th anniversary.
