    Vaughn Public Library- Book Buzz (book club for adults) reviewing Dear America at 6pm. “This is not a book about the politics of immigration. This book––at its core––is not about immigration at all. This book is about homelessness, not in a traditional sense, but in the unsettled, unmoored psychological state that undocumented immigrants like myself find ourselves in. This book is about lying and being forced to lie to get by; about passing as an American and as a contributing citizen; about families, keeping them together, and having to make new ones when you can’t. This book is about constantly hiding from the government and, in the process, hiding from ourselves. This book is about what it means to not have a home. After 25 years of living illegally in a country that does not consider me one of its own, this book is the closest thing I have to freedom.”—Jose Antonio Vargas, from Dear America”.

    Vaughn Public Library presents Emerging Refugee Crisis: How Will Wisconsinites Respond? at 7pm”The number of people fleeing poverty, conflict, and persecution around the world is creating an unprecedented number of global migrants and refugees. In the United States, and here in Wisconsin, we are facing growing pressure to accommodate them. Many Americans are asking, “Why do they want to come here? Will our communities be harmed? Who will pay the price for integration and services?” Answers to these questions have legal, economic, political and ethical implications. In this interactive presentation, Dokhanchi will discuss recent migration patterns, how they have shaped the current refugee crisis in Europe, and what can be learned from the example of asylum seekers in Germany. He will talk about the meanings of ‘displaced person,’ ‘refugee’ and ‘migrant,’ and open a dialogue with participants to consider the refugee crisis from many angles.” For more information, call 715-682-7060.
