Coming to America Book Club at Virtual

Wednesday, July 20, 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. July's selection is A Beginner's Guide to America by Roya Hakakian. Request a physical copy here,  or request the e-book or e-audio book on the Libby library app. Sign into the app with your library card.  Written as a "guide" for the newly arrived, and providing "practical information and advice," Roya Hakakian, an immigrant herself, reveals what those who settle here love about the country, what they miss about their homes, the cruelty of some Americans, and the unceasing generosity of others. Register in advance for this meeting: After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
