Jean Guerrero is the author of CRUX: A Cross-Border Memoir (One World / Random House) winner of the PEN/FUSION Emerging Writers prize. She is an Emmy-winning investigative border reporter for KPBS in San Diego; she contributes to NPR, PBS and other public media. Her America’s Wall series shines a light on the bipartisan nature of US/Mexico border barriers. Months before Trump’s family separations captured national attention, her reporting was cited by a Congressional inquiry. She started her career at the Wall Street Journal and Dow Jones Newswires as a correspondent in Mexico City, trekking through mountains with coffee smugglers, opium poppy producers and maize farmers across Latin America. She was named “Latina Journalist On The Rise” by the California Chicano News Media Association. The San Diego City Beat picked her as one of San Diego’s “Best People.” Her writing is featured in the forthcoming Best American Essays 2019, edited by Rebecca Solnit.
