“All They Will Call You” is one of two featured titles in the Library’s Book to Action book clubs. In March Tulare County Library featured actress Diane Guerrero’s book “In the Country That I Love.” When she was 14 years old, her parents, who were undocumented, were taken for deportation while she was at school. The book tells how she overcame many obstacles to become the extraordinary woman she is today.
Book to Action is a program through the California Center for the Book that combines book clubs and community action. In addition to reading the book and participating in discussions, members will be asked to assist with workshops on the path to citizenship offered by the United States Immigration and Citizenship Service (USCIS) at seven Library Branch locations, including Dinuba, Farmersville, Strathmore, Lindsay, Woodlake, Exeter, and Earlimart. Contact your local branch for more information.
