John Ross always stopped by NMSU as he crisscrossed the Americas. Last year he spoke to Rus Bradburd's workshop about his writing career...
Here's the obit from SF Gate:
"Journalist, investigative poet and social activist John Ross died peacefully today at Lake Patzcuaro in Mexico where he had lived on and off for the past 50 years. He was 72. The cause was liver cancer.
A young generation Beat poet and the national award-winning author of ten books of fiction and nonfiction, and nine chapbooks of poetry, Ross received the American Book Award (1995) for Rebellion from the Roots: Zapatista Uprising in Chiapas, and the coveted Upton Sinclair Award (2005) for Murdered By Capitalism: 150 Years of Life and Death on the American Left. The first journalist to bring news of the indigenous Mexican Zapatista revolution to English-speaking readers, Ross was widely regarded as a "voice for those without a voice," who stood with the poor and oppressed in his brilliantly stylized writing, suffering beatings and arrests during many nonviolent protests."

The script of "Hatching Max" was generated in Mark Medoff's Screenwriting class this past semester, and members of the class voted on which script should be made into a short film. The movie was filmed in Las Cruces in December and featured Tania Raymonde from ABC's Lost and J.D. Hinton in the two main roles. Other MFA students in the screenwriting class acted as extras, grips, and other assistants for the film, along with students in the Creative Media Institute program at NMSU.
