ONLINE: Many Journeys, One New Home: Immigrants in DuPage County: A Neighbors Together Program In-Person

Curator Zachary Bishop of the DuPage County Historical Museum will explore the rich history of immigrants in DuPage County from the 1830s through the present day. 

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.
