The House of Broken Angels by Luis Alberto Urrea

Date and Time: February 6, 2020, 6:00 PM CT

Location: Atchison Public Library, 401 Kansas Ave, Atchison
(view on google maps)

From the TALK series, Beyond the Border: Latino Immigration Experiences
Discussion Leader: Anne Hawkins

In a novel overflowing with joy, sorrow, and humor, Urrea skillfully weaves the voices of four generations of a Mexican-American family caught in border politics. An exuberant cast of characters, Urrea unveils their stories from their move to southern California after the Mexican Revolution in 1910, the great wave of deportation of 1932 that took them back to Mexico, and their current lives in San Diego and Seattle.

The program is administered by the Federation of State Humanities Council and supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation in partnership with the Pulitzer Prizes.
