June is Immigrant Heritage Month! To celebrate, we’ve put together a list of some excellent fiction reads that tell immigrant stories. Thanks to our former Adult Services Librarian Cailin for finding these gems before leaving us in May! We also have many immigrant stories on display in the Lobby.
Our upcoming choice is The Newcomers by Helen Thorpe, a powerful and moving account of how refugee teenagers at a public high school learn English and become Americans, in the care of a compassionate teacher. Read the book, and join the discussion on March 18, 6 pm at Lafayette Public Library.
