Q & A with award-winning author and travel writer, Stephanie Elizondo Griest

Stephanie Elizondo Griest is an assistant professor of creative non-fiction at UNC, as well as the award-winning author of the books "Around the Bloc: My Life in Moscow, Beijing, and Havana," "Mexican Enough: My Life Between the Borderlines," "100 Places Every Woman Should Go," and her latest release, "All the Agents and Saints: Dispatches from the U.S. Borderlands." Griest said "All the Agents and Saints" came from the conclusion of "Mexican Enough," when she realized through her heritage and homeland, she was a member of the borderland in South Texas. The book tells the stories and struggles of others who live in the borderlands. Griest will be doing a reading of "All the Agents and Saints" at Flyleaf Books next Tuesday.
