The Friends of the Library are happy to present their speaker series “Immigration Nation.” Part Two will take place on Monday, November 7 at the Addlestone Library Room 227 with author Marjory Wentworth who will be talking about her book Taking a Stand, The Evolution of Human Rights.  Her book follows the life of Juan Méndez, a former political prisoner in Argentina who moved to the United States to continue his lifelong fight for the rights of others. The narrative addresses issues of torture, detention, exile, forced migration, and America’s policies on these divisive issues.
