Immigrant Voices Series - Green Card Voices


With Green Card Voices and The Loft Literary Center

The Immigrant Voices Series proudly presents its first annual reading series event, Reunion For Green Card Youth Voices Series.

Seven years after the first publication of Green Card Youth Voices Minneapolis, St. Paul, Fargo, the recent edition of Afghanistan – Green Card Voices and its partner The Loft invite over 90 youth authors for a special reunion.
This is a community event dedicated to reconnecting with the authors, people that made the books possible, like-minded publishers and organizations, and the broader public. Get ready to be moved, laugh, and connect as we celebrate these incredible immigrant storytellers of Green Card Youth Voices!
We warmly invite YOU to be part of this memorable community event. Casual and/or cultural attire is strongly encouraged! There will be food, followed by a few speakers, fun activities, audience Q&A, and a chance for book signing.
TO ATTEND: This event is free and open to the public, but registration helps us plan ahead of time. Make sure to register at the bottom of this page.
