Book Signing and Reading with Alfredo Corchado, Mexico correspondent for The Dallas Morning News.
A correspondent in Mexico since the early 1990s, Alfredo Corchado has witnessed the rise of the country’s powerful drug cartels as have few other journalists. Midnight in Mexico is a gripping, first-hand account of Mexico’s drug war by a man whose reporting career has covered everything from the disappearance of women in Juarez, to the exodus of Mexico’s middle class to the United States, to official corruption, and cartel brutality. Born in Mexico, raised in California, and a graduate of the University of Texas El Paso, Mr. Corchado is a noted expert on various issue-areas of the bi-national relationship, including immigration, drug violence, and foreign policy. For bravery and enterprise, he was awarded Columbia University’s Maria Moors Cabot Prize in 2007 and was a Neiman Fellow at Harvard in 2009. Midnight in Mexico is his first book.
