The Rise and Fall of El Chapo: The Untold Story of Mexico’s Most Notorious Drug Lord
Before Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman became the most wanted man in Mexico, he was a member of a plucky narcotics start-up. His criminal career skyrocketed after taking control of the Sinaloa Cartel, which grew into the world’s most powerful drug trafficking syndicate. Based on years of investigative, on-the-ground reporting, journalist Noah Hurowitz will reveal El Chapo’s rapid rise to power and eventual life sentence in a U.S. prison.
A book signing in the Museum’s retail store with Noah Hurowitz will follow the program.
Noah Hurowitz is a journalist based in New York City. He covered the trial of El Chapo for Rolling Stone, and his work has also appeared in The Village Voice, The Baffler, New York magazine, and many more. El Chapo is his first book.
