Mark your calendars and join us on October 8 for an entertaining hour-long discussion on The Book of the Unknown Americans written by the talented and acclaimed Panamanian-American author, Cristina Henríquez.

Moving from Mexico to the United States when their daughter suffers a traumatic brain injury, the Riveras are willing to sacrifice everything in order to send their daughter to a special school. Henríquez evokes a profound sense of hope, and delivers a moving account of those who will do anything to build a future for their children—even if they have to confront endless difficulties including cultural barriers, and alienation.

In the words of Donna Seaman, the author has “compassionately imagined a gently comedic, and profoundly wrenching novel of big dreams and crushing reality, courageous love and unfathomable heartbreak.”
