Celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month and hear from author Daniel Peña as he discusses his book Bang: A Novel!
Peña is a Pushcart Prize-winning writer and Assistant Professor of English at the University of Houston-Downtown where he specializes in Fiction.

Vividly portraying the symbiotic relationship between American immigration policy and the drug war in Mexico, Bang is a meditation on the loss of talented individuals and the black market machines fed with the people removed from and shut out of America.
