Author Event - Enrique's Journey with Sonia Nazario at UC Davis Alumni Center (Alpha Gamma Rho Hall)
Avid Reader "Active", Monday, May 11 at 5:30pm
Presented by the Hemispheric Institute on the Americas, Pulitzer Prize-winning author Sonia Nazario will present her book Enrique's journey: the Story of a Boy's Dangerous Odyssey to Reunite with his Mother at UC Davis' Alumni Center in the Alpha Gamma Rho Hall on May 15th at 5:30pm. The event is open to the public.

The Avid Reader will be on hand to sell paperback editions of Nazario's book, including a version for young adults (Grades 7 and up) and a Spanish-language edition.

The award-winning, national bestselling book, Enrique’s Journey is a classic in the literature on immigration. It is now revised and updated, and Sonia Nazario is one of the country’s most powerful voices on the subject. This book is not just the story of one boy in search of his mother. It is the story of one million undocumented children living in the United States today.

Based on the Los Angeles Times newspaper series that won two Pulitzer Prizes, the George Polk Award for International Reporting, and the Grand Prize of the Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Awards, Enrique's journey puts a human face on the ongoing debate about immigration reform in the United States. The book won the 2011 Williams College Book Award Program, the 2006 California Book Award, Silver Medal in non-fiction, and the 2006 Christopher Book Award. It has been translated into eight languages, chosen by 72 universities and scores of high schools nationwide as a common or freshman read, and selected by 17 cities as a “One City” read.
