“What do we want America to be?” This is the question asked of first- and second-generation immigrant storytellers in the new anthology The Good Immigrant: 26 Writers Reflect on America. Join contributors Jade Chang (The Wangs vs. The World), Nicole Dennis-Benn (whose sophomore novel, Patsy, debuts this June), and Dani Fernandez (Ralph Breaks the Internet, “Nerdificent”) for readings and conversation in honor of Immigrant Heritage Month and to consider how Angelenos fit into the national conversation on American identity.
Pack a blanket and picnic on the lawn (no alcohol permitted), or for purchase from local food trucks. Book sales courtesy of Vroman’s Bookstore.
