David Lida "Mexico Noir"

David Lida
Thursday, September 20, 2012 - 4:00pm to 5:00pm

Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library (BRBL)
121 Wall St., New Haven, CT 06511

Journalist David Lida has made Mexico City his home since 1990, and is the author of books 'First Stop in the New World: Mexico City,' 'Capital of the 21st Century,' 'Travel Advisory', and 'Las llaves de la ciudad.'

In 2006, Lida began conducting investigations for defense lawyers whose Mexican clients are facing the death penalty in the U.S. Lida retraces their lives, looking for mitigating circumstances in the hopes of convincing the prosecution to take death off the table. This work has taken him to the most downtrodden places in Mexico—from starving agricultural villages to cities plagued by the drug war.

Lida will talk about his progress as a writer and his legal work, and will read from a forthcoming novel inspired by seeking justice down Mexico’s darkest roads.
