August 20, 2019: Octavio Solis & Don Arbor
We talk with playwright and author Octavio Solis about his book of stories about growing up in El Paso Texas, the son of Mexican migrants. Its called Retablos: Stories from a Life Lived Along the Border. We also talk about the mass shooting in El Paso and the impact it has had on Solis own family and hometown.
Then, we re-air my 2018 interview with singer-songwriter Don Arbor about his song, Everyone Comes From Somewhere. Its in honor of immigrants.
