Book In Common Lecture: All They Will Call You, Tim Hernandez

“A stunning piece of investigative journalism and a lyrical meditation on memory, meaning, and the immigrant experience.” – San Francisco Chronicle

All They Will Call You is the harrowing account of “the worst airplane disaster in California’s history,” which claimed the lives of 32 passengers, including 28 Mexican citizens—farmworkers being deported by the US government. Combining years of painstaking investigative research and masterful storytelling, award-winning author Tim Z. Hernandez weaves a captivating narrative from testimony, historical records, and eyewitness accounts, reconstructing the incident and the lives behind the legendary Woody Guthrie protest song “Deportee: Plane Wreck at Los Gatos.”
