Miriam Pawel – Author of The Crusades of Cesar Chavez and A Union of Their Dreams
Miriam Pawel is an author, journalist and independent scholar who has spent most of the last decade writing about California farmworkers, agriculture, Cesar Chavez, and the United Farm Workers union. Her latest book, “The Crusades of Cesar Chavez,” has been hailed in starred reviews as the first and definitive biography of this iconic leader. The biography picks up from where her first book left off; “The Union of Their Dreams” is the story of the heady and life-changing days of the farm worker movement, told through the eyes of eight key participants. Pawel worked for 25 years as a reporter and editor. Her recent work was supported by a fellowship from the National Endowment for the Humanities. The two books that followed, A Union of Their Dreams (200x) and The Crusades of Cesar Chavez (200x) were marked by controversy when they were released. Their has been a growing consensus amongst scholars and activists of the era that Pawel’s works are the most comprehensive and insightful on Cesar and the growth and subsequent decline of the UFW. you can read the complete editorial here: http://articles.latimes.com/2010/mar/31/opinion/la-oe-pawel31-2010mar31
