Think & Drink With Héctor Tobar says
Join Oregon Humanities for a conversation about immigration, nationalism, patriotism, and Latino political power with journalist and novelist Héctor Tobar.

During his two decades writing for the Los Angeles Times, Tobar was part of the reporting team that won a Pulitzer Prize for coverage of the 1992 Los Angeles riots and served as bureau chief in Buenos Aires and Mexico City.

His most recent book, "Deep Down Dark," recounts the aftermath of the 2010 cave-in at the San José Mine in Copiapé, Chile, that trapped thirty-three miners 2,000 feet underground for sixty-nine days. All of the miners were eventually rescued; they chose Tobar to tell their story.

Tobar is currently an assistant professor at the University of Oregon School of Journalism and Communication.
