Author Spotlight: Jean Guerrero

Festival Staff / October 9, 2018

Our very first Author Spotlight of the season is on Jean Guerrero, author of CRUX: A Cross-Border Memoir. Guerrero writes about her "quest to understand her father, who crosses borders both real and illusory: between madness and sanity, science and spirituality and more." Her book has been very positively reviewed, including a review by Luis Urrea, a Tucson Festival of Books alum. Urrea says, "Jean Guerrero has done excellent reporting from the US/Mexico borderlands. Now she examines the more mysterious borders of family history and that unknown region of the heart. You will be moved by CRUX – this book is powerful and true.”

Learn more about CRUX: A Cross-Border Memoir on Guerrero's website, and be sure to catch her at the 2019 festival!
