Miriam Pawel, Sandy NathanWICHITA, Kan. - On October 25, author Miriam Pawel gave a talk at Wichita's Watermark Books on her new book The Union of Their Dreams: Power, Hope, and Struggle in Cesar Chavez's Farm Worker Movement.
The book is not a biography of Cesar Chavez or a history of the United Farmworkers. Rather it is a collective biography of eight people who jointed the farm workers movement and played important roles in the movement.
They include Eliseo Medina who was recently elected Secretary-Treasurer of the SEIU, making him the highest ranking Mexican-American in the US labor movement. Another of the eight was actually at the reading: Sandy Nathan, who worked on the legal team for the UFW.
