INTRODUCING RIDING BEHIND THE PADRE - THE ITALIAN VERSION

  • Arizona State Museum 1013 East University Boulevard Tucson, Arizona 85721-0026 (map)

Cultural historian Dr. Alessandra Lorini, who shepherded the translation project of Riding Behind the Padre into Italian, will speak about how the legends of Padre Kino's work have become imbedded into the popular culture of the U.S. Mexico borderlands.  

Proceeds of sales of the English book are donated to the Kino Border Initiative, a faith-based program that strives to respond to the most critical needs by respecting the God-given dignity of the human person and by fostering bi-national solidarity through humanitarian assistance, education and research.  http://www.kinoborderinitative.com/
