Book cover of No Country for Eight-Spot Butterflies by Julian Aguon

Julian Aguon '04, a Chamorro human rights lawyer from Guam working at the intersection of Indigenous rights and environmental justice, will share readings, inspiration and reflections from his highly successful book, “No Country for Eight Spot Butterflies,” and engage the audience in a rich dialogue and Gonzaga reflections, moderated by Dr. Raymond Reyes, Associate Vice President for Cultural Initiatives. Appetizers and beverages will be served, the first 200 in attendance will receive a FREE Zag t-shirt, book sales available on site, and book signing offered at event conclusion. Free and open to the public.

Reviews share:

Julian offers a new perspective and solution space that is yet to be discovered; an articulation of faith and a promotion of justice. His is a voice that will give us hope, and rain for parched imaginations.
