Join us at Cooper Union in the Great Hall as Jose shares his incredible tale.
The movement of people––what Americans call “immigration” and the rest of the world calls “migration” ––is among the defining issues of our time. Technology and information cross countries and continents at blistering speed. Corporations thrive on being multinational and polyglot. Yet the world’s estimated 244 million total migrant population, particularly those deemed “illegal” by countries and societies, are locked in a chaotic and circular debate about borders and documents, assimilation and identity. An issue about movement seems immovable: politically, culturally and personally.
DEAR AMERICA is an urgent, provocative and deeply personal account from Jose Antonio Vargas, a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist who happens to be the most well-known undocumented immigrant in the United States. Born in the Philippines and brought to the U.S. illegally as a 12-year-old, Vargas hid in plain sight for years, writing for some of the most prestigious news organizations in the country (The Washington Post, The New Yorker) while lying about where he came from and how he got here. After publicly admitting his undocumented status––risking his career and personal safety––Vargas has challenged the definition of what it means to be an American and has advocated for the human rights of immigrants and migrants during the largest global movement of people in modern history. Both a letter to America and a window into Vargas’s America, this book is a transformative argument about migration and citizenship, and an intimate, searing exploration on what it means to be home when the country you call your home doesn’t consider you one of its own.
PEN Out Loud is a partnership between Strand Book Store & PEN America.
