Charles Martell Author Lecture Series: Lauren Markham
The Friends of the Library invites you to join us for a special event featuring author Lauren Markham discussing her book "The Far Away Brothers: Two Young Migrants and the Making of an American Life."

“Beautifully written, 'The Far Away Brothers' examines the claustrophobic space between grinding poverty and brutal gang violence that drives so many children from El Salvador to make the dangerous journey North. Lauren Markham applies the eye of an artist to the dogged reporting of an investigative journalist. What a fine and timely book!” —Ted Koppel, author of "Lights Out"

Purchase "Far Away Brothers" at your favorite bookstore.

Markham's writing focuses on issues related to youth, migration, the environ­ment, and her home state of California. Her work has appeared in several publications including The New York Times. "The Far Away Brothers" was awarded the Northern California Book Award, The California Book Award Silver Medal, and the Ridenhour Prize.

To request reasonable accommodations such as ASL interpretation or live captioning, please contact Sally Hitchcock at hitchcocks@csus.edu at least five (5) business days in advance of the event or as soon as possible.
