It has been said that “books open windows to the world.” The books listed here are just a few that will take you into the world of an immigrant. You can travel with them on their long journey. They’re not necessarily easy to read. They tell it like it is. These books for adults and children can educate us about the reasons people travel these long distances, in sometimes severe conditions, and how they are welcomed when they arrive. They are stories of hardship, change, heartbreak and hope. We invite you to learn more; use them in a book group, talk about them, share the stories. Help to educate the people around you.
“I wanted my children to have a better life. But I didn’t succeed.” from The Death of Josseline
