When Denese Becker, an Iowa housewife who was adopted, looks into her
birthplace in Guatemala, finds that she is the last survivor of her

both a voyage of self-discovery that permanently alters her
relationship to her American family and a political awakening that
sheds light on an act of genocide. Guests for the night are speaker
Azalea Ryckman, radio producer of Mujeres Abriendo Caminos (Women
Opening Paths), and activist on the issues affecting Guatemala and
the Guatemalan community in LA, and special guest poet Daniel Morales
Event located at The National Center for the Preservation of
Democracy at 111 North Central Ave. (directly across from the
