October 26 Book Discussion on Enrique's Journey Added to Fall Lineup


We are excited to offer an additional Friends of the UNCG Libraries book discussion this Fall. Professor Elizabeth Chiseri-Strater of the English Department will lead the discussion of Sonia Nazario's Enrique's Journey, the book selected as UNCG's all-campus read this year. Professor Chiseri-Strater explains that the book is well worth reading because "it reveals the hard issues of immigration reform. The Pulitzer Prize winning author describes one child's journey from Central America through Mexico into the United states to find his mother in a way that the problem becomes personal and intimate for the reader. Nazario's detailed reporting gives voice to the bravery of undocumented immigrants and the hardship of these families that are separated due to devastating poverty." The book discussion will take place at 7:00 p.m. in the Hodges Reading Room of Jackson Library

To register to attend this book discussion or any of the other six discussions, please visit http://library.uncg.edu/fol/register. We are also pleased to announce that author Sonia Nazario will give a public lecture at UNCG on November 16 at 7:00 pm in the Sullivan Science Building Auditorium. More details soon!
