José Ángel N. emigrated illegally from Mexico in the 1990s. He had a ninth-grade education. But he worked his way through graduate school, became a professional translator, and in 2014 published Illegal: Reflections of an Undocumented Immigrant. The acclaimed memoir unveiled the life of a man living the American dream in plain sight but outside the law. Tonight, in his first Pittsburgh appearance, N. reads from his memoir in a free event at City of Asylum’s Alphabet City. -Bill O'Driscoll
