Speaker: Natasha Garrett, PhD, author of Motherlands
The author of Motherlands, Natasha Garrett, moved from her native Macedonia to the U.S. to attend college; she never expected to become a proud Pittsburgher. She will read excerpts from her book, Motherlands, and discuss the changing patterns of immigration. In her writing, she uses humor and personal stories to explore what it means to “become” American and navigate languages, cultures and identities. The author will have books available to purchase and autograph.
