He lent his talents to the blockbuster animated film Coco and wrote the critically acclaimed novel Retablos: Stories from a Life Lived Along the Border. Octavio now lives and writes on his working farm in Medford, Ore. In this entertaining interview, Octavio and wife Jeanne Sexton, former legal counsel for GATX Capital, chat with Juliette about raising chickens, goats and their venture into making goat cheese.Viewers will have the opportunity to submit questions during the livestream.
