José Ángel N.

When: Mon., Jan. 15, 8-10 p.m. 2018

Author José Ángel N. (who requires anonymity for reasons of safety) will read from his memoir, the valiant story of a man living the American dream—illegally. N's story represents the triumph of education over adversity. He debunks the stereotype that undocumented immigrants are freeloaders, uninterested in education or opportunity for advancement. With bravery and honesty, he details the constraints, deceptions, and humiliations that characterize alien life "amid the shadows."
