AMERICANS LIKE ME: Reflections on Life Between Cultures by America Ferrera  

We are joining forces with others to talk about ONE BOOK  ONE ELMHURST: a book discussion sponsored by the Elmhurst Public Library.  Copies of the book available at the library. Prominent Americans from diverse backgrounds and occupations share short, personal essays about their experiences growing up between cultures in the United States and their efforts to find a way to belong and to feel seen.

One way for us to share the work of AAUW is to meet with other like-minded people and to talk about the immigrant experience.  Half the Sky  DEI study group are doing this for our November meetings.

Registration Required: contact the Elmhurst History Museum, 630-833-1457.

Copies of the book are available at the Elmhurst Public Library.
