Gain an inside look at the dangerous raging Mexican drug wars from a reporter who's been in the line of fire at this lecture, presented by LA cultural forum Zócalo Public Square. Alfredo Corchado will talk about his experience covering the cartel beat for Dallas Morning News and how, after breaking a story on a peace pact between the Mexican government and two powerful cartels, he was warned he was likely to be assasinated. Yet the author of Midnight in Mexico: A Reporter’s Journey Through a Country’s Descent into Darkness still lives and works in the country and remains hopeful about Mexico's future; hear him tell why at the talk.
