On Wednesday Oct 28, 4pm in Wyatt 109, Francisco Goldman will will discuss the assassination of a Guatemalan bishop Msgr. Juan Gerardi, whose bludgeoned body was found just days after he and a team of human rights investigators announced the publication of a 1,400-page report blaming Guatemala’s security forces for a 30-year reign of murder, torture, massacres, and disappearances.

Francisco Goldman is a Guatemalan-American journalist, and award-winning novelist. He lives in Mexico City and Brooklyn, New York, and teaches at Trinity College in Connecticut.
