Immigration Book Discussion Series with Lupita Reads

The Line Becomes A River: Immigration Book Discussion Series with Lupita Reads

Tuesday, April 30, 2019, 7:00 pm

Join Lupita Reads, Washington Performing Arts and DC Public Library to discuss The Line Becomes A River: Dispatches from the Border by Francisco Cantú. This event is part of a series celebrating the contributions and experiences of Latinx immigrants in the United States. The conversations will be led by Lupita Aquino—better known as “Lupita Reads”, herself a Mexican immigrant and co-founder/moderator for LIT on H St Book Club, hosted at Solid State Books.  Francisco Cantú’s The Line Becomes a River: Dispatches from the Border was named a Top 10 Book of 2018 by NPR and The Washington Post, was shortlisted for the Andrew Carnegie Medal of Excellence, and was a finalist for the National Book Critic Circle’s John Leonard Prize. In the book he recounts the complexity of being a child of a Mexican immigrant and serving with U.S. Border Patrol. He witnesses the harsh conditions in which asylum-seekers navigate the border and is deeply affected by the role of the border in his own life and family origins. “A must-read for anyone who thinks ‘build a wall’ is the answer to anything.” – Esquire
