****Time for ticketing has ended, but we will have seats at the door. We also have an overflow room if we run out of seats! Join us and your community, enjoy the conversation, and meet author Imbolo Mbue after the presentation. It is going to be a great event! Part of Kitsap Regional Library's annual One Book, One Community program. Author Imbolo Mbue hosts a discussion of immigration stories, exploring how different versions of the American Dream have shaped Kitsap. Following the panel, hear the story behind Behold the Dreamers and Imbolos journey as a writer. Afterwards, stay and get your book signed and mingle with community. Come early for an on-site book discussion. Books will be available for purchase. This is a free ticketed event. In partnership with Kitsap Historical Society, Kitsap Immigrant Assistance Center and Olympic College. Each year, Kitsap Regional Library invites the community to participate in a shared reading experience, building a starting place for open discussion. Realistic and tragic, our 2019 selection "Behold the Dreamers" is still remarkably kind to its characters. Reading this story together, we build a foundation for conversations that allow us to explore our history and how individual versions of the American Dream have shaped our Kitsap community.
