UPDATE: This event has been postponed to a later time due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Saturday, March 28th, from 4:00 to 6:00pm, for a lively discussion with Noé Álvarez, author of the new book Spirit Run. Noé will be sharing stories (and photos!) from his epic marathon across North America. You won't want to miss it!
"When the son of two Mexican immigrants hears about the Peace and Dignity Journeys--'epic marathons meant to renew cultural connections across North America'--he's compelled enough to drop out of college and sign up for one. Spirit Run is Noé Álvarez's account of the four months he spends trekking from Canada to Guatemala alongside Native Americans representing nine tribes, all of whom are seeking brighter futures through running, self-exploration, and renewed relationships with the land they've traversed." --Runner's World, Best New Running Books of 2020
NOÉ ÁLVAREZ was born to Mexican immigrant parents and raised working-class in Yakima, Washington. He lives in Boston, where, until recently, he worked as a security officer at one of the nation’s oldest libraries, the Boston Athenæum.
