Highland Park is home to almost 30,000 residents, representing many different nationalities. To celebrate this diversity, Highland Park Public Library and the city of Highland Park are inviting all residents to share family immigration stories.
The stories will be displayed on an exhibit at the Library in conjunction with the Library’s One Book, One Highland Park community-wide read title, Behold The Dreamers, a novel that explores immigration.
To participate, residents can fill out a form at the Library with several questions. Each form, when completed, will portray a resident’s path to the U.S. and to Highland Park. Completed forms will be displayed on an exhibit at the Library during the month of April. Forms can be picked up at the Library’s check out desk.
One Book, One Highland Park events are planned throughout the month of April that explore the theme of immigration and enhance the experience of reading the book.
