Long time Ballard resident and award-winning journalist David Neiwert is set to hold a signing event for his new book “And Hell Followed with Her: Crossing to the Dark Side of the American Border”. The signing will be held at Secret Garden Books (2214 NW Market St) this Friday, March 29 from 7 p.m. – 9 p.m. The signing will also double as a fundraiser for Pacific Crest School library.
“And Hell Followed With Her” was released on Tuesday, March 26 and has received many positive reviews. The book provides an account of the murder of a man and his daughter in a small town in Arizona. In the book, Neiwert documents the link between the murders and America’s Minuteman organization member Shawna Forde. “The book is a disturbing exploration of the nativist border-watch movement and its consequences,” said Neiwert’s book indexer and fellow Ballard resident Beth Nauman-Montana.
According to a review by David Takami for our news partners The Seattle Times, “David Neiwert’s new book is a taut true-crime story told with a measure of gravitas, gripping as much for the grisly particulars of a violent murder as for the fascinating context of the anti-immigrant movement playing out along the U. S-Mexico border.”
All are welcome to attend the book signing. Light snacks and beverages will be provided.
