Novel Idea Book Discussion: The Book of Unknown Americans In-Person

For readers who like to delve into a novel's characters, plot, setting, and themes. This month's book is The Book of Unknown Americans (2014) by Cristina Henríquez.

Six public libraries (Addison, Indian Prairie, Itasca, Naperville, Westmont, and Wheaton) are doing a "one community, two book" program series called Neighbors Together in which each library is going to do a book discussion on a fiction title, The Book of Unknown Americans by Cristina Henriquez and/or a nonfiction title, Conditional Citizens by Laila Lalami. We are doing this program series to promote Literacy DuPage, a local organization that teaches English, and to highlight the diversity of DuPage County. We are scheduling additional immigration-themed events with the help of speakers from the College of DuPage. Members of all libraries are welcome to participate in any of the programs or book discussions.
