Immigrant Tales
Whether arriving in hope or leaving in despair, the story of migration has provided an impetus for some magnificent fiction. Fiction Selections: THE TORTILLA CURTAIN by T. C. Boyle; EXIT WEST by Mohsin Hamid Nonfiction Selection: AMERICANS IN WAITING by Hiroshi Motomura, looks to a forgotten part of our past to show how, for over 150 years, immigration was assumed to be a transition to citizenship, with immigrants essentially being treated as future citizens--Americans in waiting. Challenging current conceptions, the author deftly uncovers how this view, once so central to law and policy, has all but vanished.

What we're about

This is your literary and topical book discussion group in Central & North Phoenix! We choose to discuss books that have been reviewed on National Public Radio programming. We are in our fifth year of existence. Book selection is a collaborative process among the regularly attending members of the Meetup. If you enjoy and appreciate thoughtful discussion of literature, please join us. See below for our next month 's meeting and book choices. Occasionally we may have a social meeting such as a brunch or gathering to watch a movie related to a book we've read.
