2. Progressive Journalist and Author Jeff Biggers

PDA of Tucson is proud to support: An Evening with Jeff Biggers - Book Talk and Signing

WHEN: Friday, Sept. 28

WHERE: Rialto Theatre, 318 E. Congress, Tucson

TIME: 7 PM doors open, program begins at 8 PM

An Evening in Celebration of Arizona Libre: Kickoff Show for the new book, 'State Out of the Union: Arizona and the Final Showdown Over the American Dream' by Tucson author, historian and performance artist Jeff Biggers, with music by Salvador Duran, The Jons, Carlos Arzate and Mariachi Nueva Melodia.

Benefit for Raza Defense Fund ($5 suggested donation)

“OUT OF THE UNION chronicles how the Arizonification of America has turned the 48th state into ground zero in a burgeoning national clash over a historic demographic shift taking place across the country with the rise of a newly empowered Latino electorate.”

“With an insider's account of the emerging new civil rights movement that is reframing the national debate over immigration, STATE OUT OF THE UNION captures the extraordinary voices in a modern-day David vs. Goliath story: After the signing of Arizona's saber-rattling SB 1070 "papers please" law erupts into a national brawl over immigration issues, a new generation of social media savvy young Latino activists, retiring baby boomers and their moderate allies lead a courageous movement to reclaim the state from nativist extremists, take down the self-proclaimed architect of SB 1070 in a historic recall election, and defend Tucson's acclaimed Ethnic Studies Program from censorship.” (Publishers Weekly, Top Ten Social Science Titles, 2012)
