The Book of Unknown Americans

This love story by Cristina Henríquez takes place in a run-down apartment building in Delaware, home to nine families who arrived in the States from various South and Central American countries, each looking to better the lives of the next generation. In alternating chapters, these men and women share stories of how their adopted country has left its mark on them, for better and worse…“It is a stunning novel of hopes and dreams, guilt and love – a book that offers a resonant new definition of what it means to be an American.” (Amazon) “Vivid … Striking … A ringing paean to love in general: to the love between man and wife, parent and child, outsider and newcomer, pilgrims and promised land.” (The Washington Post) Please join us on June 6 at noon in the Fireside Room to discuss this very timely novel.
