The Photography of War

Central Library and UTSA Southwest Campus in downtown San Antonio

Susan Toomey Frost draws from an extensive collection of Hadsell’s original photographic prints to narrate his ten years in Mexico in Witness to War: Mexico in the Photographs of Walter Elias Hadsell which presents a compelling visual record of a young American man’s venture in Mexico as the country veered into an uprising, and later, the United States’s intervention in the Mexican Revolution. Join Frost and the Trinity University Press at the San Antonio Book Fair for a reading and book signing starting at 1 pm in the Festival Room. More information here
