Book Discussion at the Princeton Senior Resource Center: "Enrique's Journey" by Sonia Nazario
In advance of author  Sonia Nazario's Feb. 1 appearance in Princeton to address Immigration Reform, we will discuss her best-selling book "Enrique's Journey," the story of a 17-year-old from Honduras and his treacherous journey to the United States in search of his mother. The discussion will be lead by Helen Burton.
 
Nazario's appearance will be the start of the  Princeton Migrations series, a community-wide investigation of the theme of migration taking place throughout the region from February through May. Spearheaded by Princeton University Art Museum, the project includes exhibitions, readings, lectures, film screens and performances by more than 20 community partners and a host of campus organizations and departments.
 
Nazario won the Pulitzer Prize for her series about Latin American children and the dangers they face while journeying across Mexico to reunite with parents living in the United States. Her appearance on Feb. 1 will be accompanied by powerful photographs and will cover reasons children migrate from Central America and how those reasons have changed radically in recent years. Princeton Senior Resource Center, 45 Stockton St.
