Exploring Diversity Book Group


Our Exploring Diversity Book Group is now reading ‘My (Underground) American Dream: My True Story as an Undocumented Immigrant Who Became a Wall Street Executive’ bu Julissa Arce. The author Arce was brought to this country by her parents as a child, and secretly lived as an undocumented immigrant in San Antonio. Arce was a scholarship winner and honors college graduate. She climbed the ladder to become a vice president at Goldman Sachs. She tells the story of her long journey to emerge from the shadows and become an American citizen. With humor, grace and insight, she tells of the physical, financial, and emotional costs of the secret that she had to keep from not only her bosses, but also her closest friends. The book is available new or used or Kindle/Nook. Please join us for our discussion of this book at 1:30pm on Thursday November 8 in the church library. For more information, contact Jane Malin
