Colleen Bradford Krantz discusses "Train to Nowhere"

Train to NowhereIn 2002, a railcar rolled into the farming community of Denison, Iowa, where the bodies of eleven undocumented immigrants were found. These eleven Central Americans and Mexicans had been locked inside a baking railcar by smugglers and left to die a horrific death. On the next Writers' Voices, journalist Colleen Bradford Krantz discusses her new book "Train To Nowhere:Inside an Immigrant Death Investigation", being released this summer. Her book dives into this tragedy to discover the full story and larger issues that surround this event. 

Colleen has worked as a reporter for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel and The Des Moines Register. She is now a freelance journalist living in central Iowa with her husband and three kids.

Ethan Zuckerman joins me again on this week's Open Views, to talk about his current venture, Global Voices. The project is a citizen journalism initiative aimed at providing visibility into theEthan Zuckerman global blogosphere. The project is not just a blog, and it's not a repository for journalists. Instead the objective is to bring out the voices in the global community and get a sense of what issues are being discussed around the world.

Ethan Zuckerman was a guest on Open Views a few months back, as founder of GeekCorps. Since his departure from GeekCorps he has become a fellow at the Berman Center for Internet and Society, at Harvard Law School, which is where he co-founded Global Voices.
