Chosen by our upcoming artist in resident, Nancy Rivera, this book is written by one of the first undocumented immigrants to graduate from Harvard. In it she revels the hidden lives of her fellow undocumented Americans in this deeply personal and groundbreaking portrait of a nation.

Join us on your Friday lunch hour to discuss chapters 1 – 3. RSVP on our website. We’re looking forward to having you join us!
Book Discussion Part 2:
This will be an in-person discussion led by Nancy Rivera at the Kimball Art Center, where we will cover the rest of the book. RSVP on our website. P.s. It’s okay if you don’t finish the entire book, it’s simply a jumping off point for discussion.
