Mary Lee and I attended the American Library Association Mid-Winter conference last month. It was a great experience and of course, I came home with so many books to add to my to-be-read stack. Following the awards announcements on Monday morning, there is an annual session for the YALSA Morris and Nonfiction award winners. Someone suggested that we attend the session and was it a treat! We were able to hear all of the Morris and Nonfiction winners speak for a few minutes about their work. Then we received some of the books for autographing.
One of the books that had been on my radar was This Land is Our Land by Linda Barrett Osborne. I have spend the last few weeks reading this, a little bit at a time, and am so glad that I did.
This book is a comprehensive history of immigration in the United States. The Table of Contents shows all that is explored in the book.
