This is the book the WSU Vancouver campus is reading There are community events on campus covering immigrants including a naturalization ceremony and a book discussion event with the Susan Eaton I found the book uplifting and encouraging It is a breath of fresh air to see communities in both red and blue states enthusiastically and successfully integrating new immigrants in the US, much better than hearing the hate diatribe we constantly hear on the news Favorite chapters were ones about a credi [...]
