Chicago Matters: Beyond Borders Book Discussion - An Immigrant Class: Oral Histories from Chicago's Newest Immigrants

The Chicago Public Library has developed a Chicago Matters: Beyond Borders collection of books related to the topic of immigration in order to provide additional information and complement the programs and reports offered by our Chicago Matters partners.  The Library is also offering book discussions around this topic, continuing with Jeff Libman discussing his book, "An Immigrant Class: Oral Histories from Chicago's Newest Immigrants".

Now in its 17th year, Chicago's award-winning multimedia public affairs series returns in 2007 with Chicago Matters: Beyond Borders to explore the impact of immigration in Chicago and the region.

Chicago Matters is made possible by The Chicago Community Trust, with programming by Chicago Public Radio, WTTW 11, the Chicago Public Library, and The Chicago Reporter.
