What: “Mexican Days: Journeys into the Heart of Mexico”
Who: Tony Cohan, travel writer and novelist; author of On Mexican Time and the memoir Native State; his articles, essays, and reviews have appeared in The New York Times, The Washington Post, and The Times (London)
Event: Tony Cohan, who has lived and traveled in Mexico for many years, has written a beautifully crafted overview of Mexico's diverse culture and history. In Mexican Days, he takes the reader to locations such as Oaxaca, Palenque, and the Yucatan Peninsula. In his signature poetic style, Cohan relays adventures from traveling the misty mountains and coastal towns of Veracruz, to chasing the ghost of a writer in Zapatista-controlled Chiapas. Cohan's travelogue brings a unique perspective to both Mexican aficionados and those contemplating a visit.
