Located just minutes from the U.S.- Mexico border, El Paso, Texas is a city divided by race. That divide loomed large in playwright Octavio Solis' childhood and is recounted in his new coming-of-age memoir, “Retablos.” Solis joins Forum to talk about why, after writing more than 25 plays, he decided to pen a memoir and what it reveals about life in a border city.

Guests:

Octavio Solis, playwright and director; author, "Retablos: Stories from a Life Lived Along the Border"
