Inclusive Reading Club: Reflections on Life in America

Inclusive Reading Club: Reflections on Life in America Online


Ask yourself, what does being an American citizen mean to you?  We ask you to not only reflect on this but to join us in reading short essays from those negotiating the American landscape and sharing their cross-cultural experiences. They include Jade Chang, author of The Wangs vs. the World; Joy Cho, founder of Oh Joy! products; Geena Rocero, Filipino American supermodel, TED speaker, and transgender advocate; and Bambadjan Bamba, award-winning actor, filmmaker, and immigrant rights activist.

We're reading "How to Center Your Own Story" by Chang, from the book, The Good Immigrant: 26 Writers Reflect on America, edited by Nikesh Shukla and Chimene Suleyman. From America Ferrera's collection of essays American Like Me: Reflections on Life Between Cultures, we'll read the book's introduction by Ferrera, and essays by Cho, Rocero, and Bamba.

Get started with the readings; also available under Course Reserves on the library's website. Tell us your thoughts about what it means to you to be an American, and post those, anonymously if you'd prefer, on the IRC's online bulletin board. You'll find additional resources, and more information about the IRC on the bulletin board. Don't forget to register for the event!
