In advance of author Sonia Nazario’s February 1st appearance in Princeton to discuss her best-selling book, about a 17-year-old boy from Honduras who travels to the United States in search of his mother, we invite you to join Pam & Bill Wakefield on Sunday, January 28, at 4 pm in the Conference Room for a discussion of her book Enrique’s Journey. Books are available for purchase in the Church Office for $15, exact change or check would be appreciated. The Princeton Public Library has ordered some extra copies for circulation.
Sonia Nazario won the Pulitzer Prize for her series about Latin American children and the dangers they face while journeying across Mexico to reunite with parents living in the United States. Nazario’s talk will be accompanied by powerful photographs and will cover reasons children migrate from Central America and how those reasons have changed radically in recent years.
Sonai Nazario’s appearance will be the start of the Princeton Migrations series, a community-wide investigation of the theme of migration taking place throughout the region from February through May. Spearheaded by Princeton University Art Museum, the project includes exhibitions, readings, lectures, film screens and performances by more than 20 community partners and a host of campus organizations and departments.
