Reading California Book Discussion: The Far-Away Brothers

We will be discussing the California Book Awards' 2018 silver medalist for nonfiction, written by Oakland-based author Lauren Markham. Subtitled Two Young Migrants and the Making of an American Life, the story resonates with us about many contemporary immigrant stories. Ernesto and Raul Flores, identical twins from El Salvador, want to escape the gang life that threatens them in their homeland. This book traces their odyssey from Central America to Oakland and their navigation of a new life there. We are pleased that author Lauren Markham, who earned many awards and accolades for her work on this book, will be able to join us.
