Jose Antonio Vargas - Dear America

Presented by Book Passage at Book Passage, Corte Madera, Corte Madera CA

Nov 10 2019
Jose Antonio Vargas - Dear America

The Pulitzer Prize-winner, Emmy- and Tony-nominated filmmaker/producer in person

This is not a book about the politics of immigration. This book––at its core––is not about immigration at all.

This book is about homelessness, not in a traditional sense, but in the unsettled, unmoored psychological state that undocumented immigrants like myself find ourselves in.

This book is about lying and being forced to lie to get by; about passing as an American and as a contributing citizen; about families, keeping them together, and having to make new ones when you can’t. This book is about constantly hiding from the government and, in the process, hiding from ourselves.

This book is about what it means to not have a home.

After 25 years of living illegally in a country that does not consider me one of its own, this book is the closest thing I have to freedom.
Jose Antonio Vargas, from Dear America
