Light Hall Patio and Auditorium
1000 W. College Ave, Silver City NM
Daniel Chacón will give the keynote address “The Politics and Realities of Living on the Border–with a dash of humor”, following the banquet dinner.
Chacon’s obsessions are the desert, the border and stand-up comedy. Author of four books of fiction, he will discuss how he combines his preoccupations.
For Hotel Júarez: Stories, Rooms, and Loops, he spent time in Júarez, often crossing over the border at night to walk the streets and talk to the people. To ensure the authenticity of his observations, he wrote and performed stand-up comedy based on these encounters.
In his presentation he will show how writing humor is a very particular way of understanding and revealing humanity.
