Join us for an interactive presentation with author José Ángel N. as he shares stories from his book Illegal: Reflections of an Undocumented Immigrant. Hear about his transformative years as a UIC student and how the humanities have played an important role in his personal and professional growth. His talk will focus on how his education helped him understand the forces that propelled him to leave his home country and take ownership of his life as an undocumented immigrant.
