Everything They Never Told You about Immigration Histories and Stories with Dr. Ben Railton.

Wednesday, September 19 at 3:30PM in the Amelia V. Gallucci-Cirio Library at Fitchburg State University.

Join us for The Community Read's opening event. In Celeste Ng's novel, Everything I Never Told You, a family's secrets are closely tied to themes of immigration and ethnic identity.  As it turns out, much of American immigration history is also far too secret, and in this talk, Professor Ben Railton will share some of the histories and stories that we are never (or hardly ever) told.
