Mexican Author Edgar Avila: Journalism Should Exalt Culture

VERACRUZ, Mexico – Mexican author Edgar Avila Perez said in an interview with EFE that in a country convulsed by violence, like Mexico, books like “Veracruz Contemporaneo” are needed, given that it exalts the social contribution of 14 local artists.

“I’ve always believed that, with journalism, we must contribute to extolling those men and women who are examples for building a better society,” Avila said regarding the book on which he worked as co-author with cultural promoter Luis Barria.

Avila Perez, a writer and journalist, was born 42 years ago in the state of Puebla, which borders on Veracruz, and he considers it a professional obligation to speak and write about those artists and about anyone who helps build a better society “in a country as troubled as Mexico.”

As an example of the violence prevailing in his homeland, he pointed to statistics from the Mexican government’s National Public Safety System showing that 2,343 murders occurred in April and 8,900 were committed during the first four months of this year.
