BORDER BOOK AUTHOR AT C & P: Author Sarah Towle is at C & P Coffee (5612 California SW; WSB sponsor) 4-6 pm to talk about her new book addressing a very timely issue:

Just when the debate could not be more divisive, deceptive, or disturbing, Sarah Towle‘s “Crossing the Line: Finding America in the Borderlands” offers a timely, urgent, and engaging exposé of the human costs of US immigration policies and practices. Join Sarah and West Seattle family and friends at C&P Coffee Company for readings and discussion of the US deterrence to detention to deportation complex that is failing everyone — save the demagogues and profiteers who benefit from it.
