The evening began with a silent auction and live music by Carmel Valley’s Chase Morrin. Then in the Morrison Hotel Gallery, border reporter Amy Isackson talked about plans for full-time media coverage at the border and Urrea read from his new novel, “Into the Beautiful North,” which is the story of a young woman’s quest to find herself on both sides of the border.
