Event Details

Join them as they shed light on the dark history of the man who Pope Francis canonized in 2015. Elias Castillo, author of A Cross of Thorns will be in conversation with noted indigenous author Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz.

Castillo, a former reporter for the San Jose Mercury News, spent years researching life at the missions through historical documents at Santa Barbara Mission Historical Archives, Mexico’s National Archives in Mexico City and numerous university libraries. He studied documents written in Serra’s hand and little-known letters and reports from Serra and other Franciscans, documents from Spanish governors and military leaders, and eyewitness accounts from travelers.
