Book Launch: Midnight in Mexico

June 20, 2013 // 10:00am11:00am

In the last six years, more than 100,000 people have disappeared or been killed in Mexico's struggle with organized crime, where drug trafficking is a multi-billion dollar business. With over 70 journalists killed since 2006, Mexico is one of the most dangerous places in the world to be a reporter. Despite the risks, book author and journalist, Alfredo Corchado, has bravely continued reporting on government corruption, murders in Juarez, and organized crime in the country of his birth.

Copies of the book will be available for purchase on the day of the event. To purchase the book click here.
