Event Registration

Solito - Book Group in English

This summer, members are welcomed to join us to read and discuss the book “Solito” by Javier Zamora. We’ll follow Javier as he recounts his journey as a 9-year-old child migrating from El Salvador to the United States to reunite with his parents. We’ve chosen this book as an opportunity to reflect about the experiences of children migrating from other countries into the US. Many of the communities we support have brave stories of individuals that chose to seek out a new life in the US. We can use the author’s story as a space for processing our learning and reflecting on where else stories like Javier’s are represented in our work.


We are glad to offer this opportunity in English and Spanish. Please register for the language of your choice if you're able to commit to joining us for both online sessions.
