Join LIRS for its third Virtual Book Event, part of a series of insightful interviews with authors and experts in the immigration landscape today.
On Tuesday, August 25th at 3pm, New York Times editor and author Jia Lynn Yang will discuss her new book, "One Mighty and Irresistible Tide: The Epic Struggle Over American Immigration, 1924-1965"
Framed movingly by her own family’s story of immigration to America, Yang’s book is a sweeping history of the twentieth-century battle to reform American immigration laws that set the stage for today’s roiling debates. A deeply researched and illuminating work of history, "One Mighty and Irresistible Tide" shows how Americans have strived and struggled to live up to the ideal of a home for the "huddled masses," as promised in Emma Lazarus’s famous poem.
The session will be moderated by Krish O'Mara Vignarajah, president and CEO of Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service.
