About this event:
Immigration is a complex and highly personal experience. The stories told in Into the Beautiful North personify that experience.
Join us for a discussion with Dr. Antonio Delgado as he examines the experiences, attitudes and viewpoints of major Into The Beautiful North characters. Themes from the novel that will be covered in the presentation will be based on historical accounts of prior Mexican Immigrant experiences. Key immigration themes will include physical, mental and emotional journey of immigration and clash of cultures to name a few.
