Categories: Author/Storyteller

A heartfelt memoir about the immigrant experience from NPR correspondent Aarti Namdev Shahani.Who really belongs in America? That question has chased every newcomer and many native born since the founding of the republic. In this heart-wrenching, vulnerable and witty memoir, journalist Aarti Shahani digs deep inside herself and her family for an answer-one that she finds in an unlikely place.The Shahanis came to Queens-from India, by way of Casablanca-in the 1980s. They were undocumented for a few years and then, with the arrival of their green cards, they thought they'd made it. This memoir is the story of how they did, and didn't.Register to attend by calling 414-286-3011 or at www.mpl.orgSponsored by Boswell Book Company. Books will be available for purchase.
