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/DiscussionThis 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.
