Charles Bowden was our featured reader this year. He read from his recent book about Cuidad Juarez, Murder City, as well as from his other work pertaining to the US-Mexico border. The benefit also featured live music, a mini-carnival, and a silent auction. Thanks to everyone who helped with the Hunger Benefit this year, including creative writing students, faculty members, volunteers and attendees.
