In advance of author Sonia Nazario’s February 1st appearance at the Princeton Public Library to discuss her best-selling book Enrique’s Journey,, about a 17-year-old boy from Honduras who travels to the United States in search of his mother, we invite you to join discussion leader Janie Hermann (PPL) at 2 pm for a discussion.
Sonai Nazario’s appearance will be the start of the Princeton Migrations series, a community-wide investigation of the theme of migration taking place throughout the region from February through May. Spearheaded by Princeton University Art Museum, the project includes exhibitions, readings, lectures, film screens and performances by more than 20 community partners and a host of campus organizations and departments.
Sonia Nazario won the Pulitzer Prize for her series about Latin American children and the dangers they face while journeying across Mexico to reunite with parents living in the United States. Her journalism has tackled some of this country’s most intractable problems — hunger, drug addiction, immigration — and has won her some of the most prestigious journalism and book awards.
