Ed Morales is a veteran journalist whose work has appeared in The New York Times, Newsday, The Village Voice, The Miami Herald, Rolling Stone, the Guardian, The Nation and the Los Angeles Times.

Drawing on a deep body of knowledge accrued over decades of critical reporting on the experience of Puerto Ricans in New York and the relationship between the island and the U.S., Mr. Morales' latest book,
Fantasy Island: Colonialism, Exploitation, And The Betrayal of Puerto Rico tells an up to the minute story with roots 100 years old.

Want to understand what the summer's dancing protests against Puerto Rican Governor Ricky Rosselló were all about? Wonder how the Trump administration's response to Hurricane Maria fits into history? Confused about what's true and who tells the truth? Curious how reporters' own politics and viewpoints effect what they see and say? Want to understand reporters' role in creating the first draft of history? Come to this conversation.
