In celebration of the launch of Narcoland: The Mexican Drug Lords and Their Godfathers, author Anabel Hernández will be speaking at The New School.

In Narcoland, Anabel Hernández takes on the so-called "war on drugs" in Mexico, surveying the past 35 years of drug production and trafficking in Mexico and exposing the Mexican government's complicity with the major criminal organizations that supply the United States with the majority of its illegal narcotics.

Anabel Hernández is one of Mexico's leading investigative journalists and an activist for press freedom.  In 2012, she received the World Assocation of Newspapers' Golden Pen of Freedom Award.
