Next Month …Read Drown by Junot Diaz along with us and listen to our discussion, download that discussion on November 28, 2016. We’ll continue this semester’s theme of examining the immigrant &/or refugee experience through Junot Diaz’ Drown. How does Diaz describe barriers immigrants feel when coming to the U.S. and how does his characters overcome them? What can these stories tell us about class in America? What should we learn from these stories? “With ten stories that move from the barrios of the Dominican Republic to the struggling urban communities of New Jersey, Junot Diaz makes his remarkable debut. Diaz’s work is unflinching and strong, and these stories crackle with an electric sense of discovery.” – Goodreads
Looking Ahead …In December, we will be reading two books: White Trash: The 400-Year Untold History of Class in America by Nancy Isenberg and The City and The City by China Miéville. Read along with us! Let us know what you think of the book or the podcasts at Facebook or Twitter.
This podcast was produced by Aubrey Hicks and Jonathan Schwartz, recorded and mixed by Corey Hedden.
