Zócalo Public Square has added an event this Friday evening with Josefina Vázquez Mota, the former secretary of education in Mexico who beat out President Felipe Calderón's handpicked candidate to become the nominee of the National Action Party. If elected on July 1 she would become Mexico's first female president. She will "talk about her life, her career, and her hopes for her country and the North American community going forward" at MOCA on Friday at 7:30 p.m., the Zócalo flackage says. Pamela K. Starr, director of the U.S.-Mexico Network at USC, will moderate. Reservations
