Social Justice Book Club reads TELL ME HOW IT ENDS by Valeria Luiselli

Event date: 
Tuesday, June 26, 2018 - 6:30pm
Event address: 

Join us for a discussion of Valeria Luiselli's Tell Me How It Ends: An Essay in Forty Questions.


A damning confrontation between the American dream and the reality of undocumented children seeking a new life in the US.

Structured around the forty questions Luiselli translates and asks undocumented Latin American children facing deportation, Tell Me How It Ends (an expansion of her 2016 Freeman’s essay of the same name) humanizes these young migrants and highlights the contradiction between the idea of America as a fiction for immigrants and the reality of racism and fear-both here and back home.
