Miriam Pawel

Miriam Pawel is an author, journalist and independent scholar who has spent most of the last decade writing about California farmworkers, agriculture, Cesar Chavez, and the United Farm Workers union. Her latest book, "The Crusades of Cesar Chavez," has been hailed in starred reviews as the first and definitive biography of this iconic leader. The biography picks up from where her first book left off; "The Union of Their Dreams" is the story of the heady and life-changing days of the farm worker movement, told through the eyes of eight key participants. Pawel worked for 25 years as a reporter and editor. Her recent work was supported by a fellowship from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
