Coming to America Book Club at Virtual

Wednesday, January 19, 2022 - 5:30 PM to 6:30 PM

Audience: Adults/ Older Adults/ Teens

Categories: Book Club/Discussion

This book club approaches American identity as an evolving and ongoing conversation, using fiction and non-fiction to explore questions of identity, assimilation, language, cuisine, generational change and other aspects of life in the United States. January's selection is Homeland Elegies by Ayad Akhtar. Request a physical copy here,  or request the e-book or e-audio book on the Libby library app. Sign in to the app with your library card.  Milwaukee-area native Akhtar's story of a father and son blurs fact and fiction, documenting contemporary history - the post-911 era and 2016 election of Donald Trump -  as seen through the lens of a first-generation Pakistani-American and his immigrant parents. Register in advance for this meeting: After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
