Writers LIVE: Jose Antonio Vargas

January 23 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Jose Antonio Vargas is a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, an Emmy-nominated filmmaker, and a leading voice for the human rights of immigrants. He is the founder and CEO of Define American, the nation’s leading non-profit media and culture organization that fights injustice and anti-immigrant hate through the power of storytelling. He has worked as a reporter at The Washington Post, The Huffington Post, the San Francisco Chronicle, and other leading publications. In Dear America: Notes of an Undocumented Citizen, Vargas examines not only the facts of immigration but also the searing emotional reality of living for twenty-five years as a contributing member of a country that does not consider him one of its own.

Hosted by The Church of the Redeemer in partnership with the Pratt Library’s Writers LIVE series.
