Josefina MotaWe are proud to host Josefina Vázquez Mota, arguably the most prominent woman in Mexican politics, the evening of Feb. 19 for a discussion of her latest book el El Sueño Que Unió La Frontera. An economist, businesswoman, journalist and author, Vázquez Mota has held multiple ministerial positions in Mexico and was the PAN candidate for president in the 2012 elections. Her most recent publication is the culmination of scores of interviews with the Mexican diaspora in the United States about their professional lives and pursuit of the American Dream. From doctors to scientists, from DREAMers to day laborers, Vázquez Mota captures the nuanced relationship that her countrymen have with the border, the opportunities they find in the U.S. and the lives they leave behind in Mexico. A cocktail reception will follow the presentation and book signing.

This program will take place in Spanish. Regrettably, no interpretation is available at this time.
