The St. Joseph County Public Library's One Book, One Michiana is a month-long celebration taking place from April 1 - April 30, 2018. The book title is The Distance Between Us by Reyna Grande, and is an opportunity for the community to engage in a conversation by coming together to read the same book at the same time. The goal of One Book, One Michiana is to unite the community through compelling literature and lively discussion. Ultimately, the program is meant to foster literacy and a lifelong love of reading.
The Distance Between Us chronicles Reyna Grande's childhood in Mexico and her journey as an undocumented immigrant to the United States. Her memoir sheds lights on untold aspects of immigrations stories: what happens to children left behind and how children navigate the challenges of immigration.
One Book author Reyna Grande will give a presentation followed by a Q & A session and book signing on April 9, at 6:30 pm, in the Main Library's Humprheys Multimedia Room. Click Here for more information about this event.
