Chicagoan Chesa Boudin is a law student at Yale and the author of a new travel memoir about South America. As a child, Boudin's parents, members of the Weather Underground, were jailed for armed robbery. He was raised by adopted parents Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn. Boudin's new book, Gringo: A Coming-of-Age in Latin America
, doesn't deal directly with his unique upbringing, but with the region's tortured politics and legacy of dictatorships.
Chesa Boudin will read from his book this evening at 6 at Jane Addams Hull House Museum
