Tim Z. Hernandez at Bookworks

Saturday, April 7 at 3:00 p.m. – Albuquerque’s Bookworks hosts Tim Z. Hernandez for a reading and signing of his documentary novel All They Will Call You. Combining years of painstaking investigative research and masterful storytelling,  Hernandez will reconstruct the harrowing account of “the worst airplane disaster in California’s history,” which claimed the lives of thirty-two passengers, including at least twenty-eight Mexican citizens–farmworkers who were being deported by the U.S. government. Pushing narrative boundaries, while challenging perceptions of what it means to be an immigrant in America, Hernandez’s All They Will Call You renders intimate portraits of the individual souls who, despite social status, race, or nationality, shared a common fate one frigid morning in January 1948.
