With immigration at the forefront of national political conversations, join Richland Library from 6:30 – 8 p.m., Tuesday, April 11 at our Main location (1431 Assembly Street) for the timely, public program – Finding a Voice: Stories of Latino Migrants in America. Michel Stone, award-winning novelist and immigration activist, and Ben Youngblood, Senior International Business Major at the University of South Carolina, plan to share stories and insights into the writing and presentation of migrant stories in South Carolina. This program combines a book signing for Stone’s Border Child, released on April 4, and the presentation of Youngblood’s senior thesis, a collection of interviews with Latino migrants in South Carolina. With the US immigrant population recorded at nearly 43 million in 2015, according to American Community Survey data, this program is an opportunity to engage in this discussion of culture, identity and belonging.
