The Hispanic Resource Center at TCCL's Martin Regional Library Hosts a Talk by Roberto Suro

Oct 2, 2014

When the TCCL's Martin Regional Library opened its Hispanic Resource Center in 1999, the noted author and journalist Roberto Suro was the inaugural speaker. Now, as this facility marks its Quinceañera (or 15th Anniversary), Suro returns to the Hispanic Resource Center to talk about his latest book, "Writing Immigration: Scholars and Journalists in Dialogue," and to discuss changes in the U.S. Latino community over the past decade and a half. Suro's address is free to the public, and it happens tonight (Thursday the 2nd) at 7pm at the Martin Regional Library (2601 S. Garnett Road). Suro is our guest on ST today; his other books include "Strangers Among Us: Latino Lives in a Changing America," "Watching America’s Door: The Immigration Backlash and the New Policy Debate," and "Remembering the American Dream: Hispanic Immigration and National Policy." He's also a professor in the Annenberg School of Communication and Journalism at USC, and he joins us by phone to talk about various trends and topics related to immigration in America (especially where Latinos are concerned).
