Award-winning author Chellis Glendinning reads from her new book, Chiva: A Village Takes on the Global Heroin Trade (New Society 2005).

Chiva is a work of creative nonfiction that merges the global epic of heroin trafficking with the heroic story of the New Mexico village with the most drug overdose deaths per capita in the US. The book interweaves: 1) the true tale of how the citizens of Chimayó NM rose up against decades-old rule by its drug dealers; 2) the story of the author's love affair with one dealer-in-recovery; and 3) the political context behind these stories: the global workings of the heroin production business.

Chellis Glendinning, Ph.D., is a Phi Beta Kappa graduate of UC Berkeley. A psychotherapist specializing in trauma recovery, she is the author of four previous books, including Off the Map: An Expedition Deep into Empire and the Global Economy, which won the National Federation of Press Women 2000 Book Award. Glendinning lives in Chimayó NM.

Free and open to the public.
