Ioan Grillo has spent the last decade reporting on organized crime and violence in Mexico. Please join us for a discussion of his new book, El Narco, published by Bloomsbury Press on October 25. The book has been featured on NPR and on the websites of Time, Mother Jones and The New Yorker.

El Narco seeks to trace the origins, the recent escalation and the human cost of the drug trade and organized crime in Mexico. It takes a critical stance toward the U.S. and Mexican governments’ unsuccessful efforts to confront the violence and its causes.

Mr. Grillo will present some of the book’s main themes, and a moderated discussion will follow. Copies of the book will be available for purchase.

Please RSVP to Joseph Bateman at jbateman@wola.org or 202-797-2171.
