United We Read SLC is an initiative for everyone in Salt Lake County to connect by reading the same book and by sharing their experience with others. Participating libraries have copies of the book to give away (with the hope you'll pass it on once you've read it) and to check out, including Spanish-language and book-on-CD.

Hosted by United We Read SLC, immerse yourself in the immigrant and New American experience with award-winning author Cristina Henríquez, as she discusses the overlooked Immigrant, her novel The Book of Unknown Americans—the 2018 United We Read SLC selection—and engages in Q&A.
