Colleen at Books in the City is hosting an Immigrant Stories Challenge from January 1, 2011 to December 31, 2011. I’m signing up for the Just Off the Boat level–read 1 to 3 books about an immigrant experience. These books can be fiction or non-fiction, and they can be immigrant stories set in any country. I wasn’t sure what I would read, but in looking through Colleen’s recommendations, there are several that are already on my to-read list that I’m very excited about. Go to Books in the City to sign up!
I’ll track my progress here.
- Mr. Rosenblum Dreams in English by Natasha Solomons
- Major Pettigrew’s Last Stand by Helen Simonson, read by Peter Altschuler
- The Arrival by Shaun Tan
- Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford
