Author Cristina Henriquez talk about her new novel, 'The Book of Unknown Americans'

Dreams, challenges and hope are three words that perhaps best describe what every immigrant to these shores has possessed and faced since the Pilgrims landed on Plymouth Rock. Then there’s the question of what it means to be an American. Chicago-based author Cristina Henriquez peels back the curtain on the immigrant experience in the 21st century in her new novel, The Book of Unknown Americans. She stops by to talk about the book’s characters and how the story resonates with today’s debate over immigration. Photo Courtesy of Facebook
