My America: Immigrant and Refugee Writers Today

The My America: Immigrant and Refugee Writers Today exhibit and related program series explores the influence of modern immigrant and refugee writing in America on our culture, history, and daily lives.

My America gives visitors and students a deep and personal experience, bringing them face-to-face — both through videos and in person — with contemporary authors who are immigrants, refugees, and second generation immigrants from all parts of the world, and is designed to elicit thoughtful dialogue on a wide variety of issues. The authors featured in My America delve into questions about writing influences, being multilingual, community, family, and what it means to be American.
