Immigration Project: Beyond the Recommended Reading List

Bookshop Santa Cruz and the Community Action Board of Santa Cruz County Immigration Project (SCCIP) worked together to curate a book list featuring some of the most accessible and influential books for children that address issues of immigration in the United States of America, as part of our Fall Words To Act On Partnership. We built a brief but comprehensive of Recommended Reading for Adults as well as Recommended Reading for Kids.

However, there are many, many more books out there that broaden and deepen our perspectives and understanding of the issues related to immigration in the USA, and facing immigrants within this country. Below please find additional reading beyond our Recommended lists for immigrant stories and perspectives, and history and analysis to address these issues that matter in this time.
