English In Action is delighted to announce that its Summer Benefit will return to an in-person format this year. Mark your calendars now for Tuesday, September 7 at 5:30 pm for an engaging and informative evening at Aspen Art Museum. Hear from our guest speaker Francisco Cantú, award-winning author of The Line Becomes a River: Dispatches from the Border, a memoir of Cantú's time as a border patrol agent on the US-Mexico frontier.
A former Fulbright fellow, Francisco Cantú has been the recipient of a Pushcart Prize, a Whiting Award, and an Art for Justice fellowship. A lifelong resident of the Southwest, he now lives in Tucson, where he teaches writing and works to support incarcerated migrants through correspondence and accompaniment programs.
