The Book of Unknown Americans

Feb 26, 2015

Thursday, we're wrapping up our coverage on US-Latin American relations with novelist Cristina Henriquez. Her latest book, The Book of Unknown Americans, is about immigrants who have come here from various Latin-American countries and have settled in one apartment building in Delaware. It's not the typical setting for immigrants maybe, but Henriquez says immigration is a story that's everywhere ... it's an American story. (Rebroadcast)
