“Reading makes immigrants of us all. It takes us away from home, but more important it finds homes for us everywhere" (Rochman, 1993).
This four-month book club series for adults and teenagers will have participants reading books representing four different ethnic/cultural groups in America. These books are not meant to be the authoritative source representing all individuals of a culture, but serve as a unique glimpse into the struggles that arise in trying to retain cultural/ethnic identity in America.
October's book is "I Am Not Your Perfect Mexican Daughter" by Erika L. Sánchez.
