luisphoto_220x318px 30 Minutes rebroadcasts Luis Alberto Urrea reading from Nobody’s Son , published by UA Press, at a Dia de los Muertos Celebration held in November 2012 in conjunction with the Confluence Center. Urrea, a 2005 Pulitzer Prize finalist and member of the Latino Literature Hall of Fame, is a prolific and acclaimed writer who uses his dual-culture life experiences to explore greater themes of love, loss and triumph. Born in Tijuana to a Mexican father and an American mother, Urrea has won numerous awards for his poetry, fiction and essays. The Devil’s Highway,  his 2004 non-fiction account of a group of Mexican immigrants lost in the Arizona desert, won the Lannan Literary Award and was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize and the Pacific Rim Kiriyama Prize.
