Author Talk with Jose Antonio Vargas

Thursday, June 24, 2021

Jose Antonio Vargas, Pulitzer Prize winning journalist and author of Dear America: Notes of an Undocumented Citizen, takes audiences deeper into his story, sharing details of his journey to America from the Philippines as a child; his journey through America as an immigration reform activist; and his journey inward as he re-connects with his mother, whom he hadn't seen in person in over 20 years. With anecdotes from both his own story and the struggles of countless other undocumented immigrants in America, Vargas poignantly explores one of the most divisive questions facing our country today: how do you define “American”? This program will be facilitated in English, with simultaneous Spanish interpretation. This program is being done in partnership with Watsonville Public Library and Sunnyvale Public Library for Book to Action 2021.
