Copies available for check out on the front table in the lobby or place a hold and we’ll put one aside for you! (The catalog shows all copies checked out; they are all here with us!)
There will be a book discussion on Saturday, October 2—details to follow.
The book contains thirty-one stories about life between cultures, told by actors, comedians, athletes, politicians, artists, and writers, who are also immigrants, children or grandchildren of immigrants, indigenous people, or people who otherwise grew up with deep and personal connections to more than one culture. Each of them struggled to establish a sense of self, find belonging, and feel seen. Ranging from the heartfelt to the hilarious, their stories shine a light on a quintessentially American experience and will appeal to anyone with a complicated relationship to family, culture, and growing up.
