Francisco Cantú

Fresh out of college in 2008, Francisco Cantú used his Spanish skills and international relations degree to become a US border patrol agent, a position he held for four years. His acclaimed 2018 memoir The Line Becomes a River looks at “the cruelties the border creates, for Americans and Mexicans on both sides of the line,” and about observing violence as an act of violence itself. Brown’s The reading will be followed by a conversation with postdoctoral fellow Gustavo Quintero. This is the third of four public readings in the unusually punctuated Nonfiction!@Brown writing series.
