Nikesh Shukla & Chimene Suleyman: The Good Immigrant USA

Date: Sunday, Oct 13
Time: 7:00pm
Venue: Storysmith Books
Price: £5

Nikesh Shukla and Chimene Suleyman introduce the landmark essay collection, The Good Immigrant USA, which they co-edited, in conversation with the book’s publisher, Sharmaine Lovegrove of Dialogue Books.

“An urgent collection of essays by first- and second-generation immigrants, exploring what it’s like to be othered in an increasingly divided America.

“From Trump’s proposed border wall and travel ban to the marching of White Supremacists in Charlottesville, America is consumed by tensions over immigration and the question of which bodies are welcome. In this much-anticipated follow-up to the bestselling UK edition, hailed by Zadie Smith as ‘lively and vital’, editors Nikesh Shukla and Chimene Suleyman hand the microphone to an incredible range of writers whose humanity and right to be in the US is under attack.”

Tickets include 10% off featured books on the night.
