Description/Abstract: Staff Picks: Green Card Stories

Come and take a look at the numerous issues faced by immigrants when leaving their home countries, from the documentation, to the courts, to the hardships and successes, as we continue to examine our role as students, educators, parents, and citizens.

Inspired by the eponymous book written by Saundra Amrhein and winner of five national awards (Umbrage Editions, 2011), Green Card Stories features select works from the Gottesman Libraries' collections about the complexity of immigration to the United States. Included are children's books, pedagogical works, curriculum, even film. Among the 16 authors presented are Francine Cary, Edwidge Danticat, Joshua Davis, Junot Diaz, TC alumna Tatyana Klein, Chang-Rae Lee, Peggy Levitt, Betsy Maestro, and Bernard Wolf.

Green Card Stories is curated by Kaitlin Kehnemuyi, Library Services Associate, who is completing an MA in Library and Information Science at Pratt Institute.
