Join SAWCC for a reading in solidarity with American immigrants! South Asian writers Marina Budhos (author of Tell Us We’re Home, Atheneum 2010), Tania James (Atlas of Unknowns, Knopf 2009), and Rinku Sen (The Accidental American, Berrett-Koehler 2008) will read from their recent work which explores identity, family, and diaspora. Following the reading, Rinku Sen will discuss ways to fight the current anti-immigration legislation in Arizona and elsewhere. Attendees will have the opportunity to write postcards to prominent legislators and the White House advocating for immigrant rights.
