AuthorSpeak with Cristina Henríquez

Tuesday, June 10, 2014

Join Cristina Henríquez, author of The Book of Unknown Americans as she shares her remarkable and unforgettable book. Cristina's father came to the United States from Panama in 1971 and she began this book thinking about his life and his story. Her mother was a translator for the school district in Delaware and worked with families from all over Latin America -- families who came to the United States for better educational opportunities for their children. Families far from home, filled with both hope and fear for the future. A passionate, powerful story, one that every book group should read and discuss. A light lunch will be provided by the Library For additional information or to register, please call Cynde Bloom Lahey, Library Programming Specialist at (203) 899-2780, ext. 15133 or email
