Immigrants in the News
The migrant humanitarian crisis in Europe has inspired long-delayed public dialogue about the plight of refugees and the struggles immigrants endure. And as in most meaningful dialogue, references to relevant stories and literature are part of the conversation. Stories in our anthology Immigrant Voices: 21st Century Stories are noted in “Longing to Belong: What’s Next in the European Migrant Crisis,” by author Beth Kephart published in the Huffington Post. Quotes from stories by Meena Alexander, Junot Diaz, and Carolina De Robertis are included as insights to the immigrant experience. Check out the article and then read/discuss our anthology to gain a better understanding of today’s immigrant experience from writers who’ve lived it for themselves.
