Diary of a Reluctant Dreamer: An Afternoon with Alberto Ledesma

Event date and time

Wednesday, November 20, 2019 - 1:00pm to 3:00pm

Description

In his hybrid memoir, Alberto Ledesma wonders at what point does a long-time undocumented immigrant become an American in the making? From undocumented little boy to "hyper documented" university professor, Ledesma's experiences from immigrant to student to academic are shared with honest words and illustrated with colorful images in his graphic novel Diary of a Reluctant Dreamer. Join the University Library and Cross Cultural Centers as they welcome Ledesma for a humorous, gritty and multilayered portrait of undocumented immigrant life in urban America.
