Book Presentations: David Bacon’s “In the Fields of the North / En los Campos del Norte”

David Bacon’s new book, In the Fields of the North / En los Campos del Norte, came out on May 1. Published by the University of California Press and Colegio de la Frontera Norte, the book is “an intensive look at farm workers, documenting work life, living conditions, culture and migration through over 300 photographs and many narratives of workers themselves, in both English and Spanish.”

David is a photographer and journalist with years of experience covering labor and immigration developments. He'll be giving book talks in the coming weeks in Los Angeles and Davis.  For more information, go to The Reality Check, David’s blog,
