Francisco Cantu and Tom Sleigh in conversation w/ Phil Klay

This Valenties Day we're talking about a broader kind of love, a sense of global compassion and empathy. Books Are Magic is thrilled to host three fantastic writers for a discussion about borders, migration, and the global refugee crisis.

Fransisco Cantu launches his memoir The Line Becomes a River, about his time as a border patrol agent along the U.S./ Mexico border, and Tom Sleigh launches his essay collection The Land Between Two Rivers, about his time in war zones and refugee camps in Africa and the Middle East. Phil Klay, author of Redeployment, will moderate the conversation.
