Finalist for Prize for New Immigrant Writing

I’m so excited to be a finalist for this book contest:

Founded by Mexican immigrant Ilan Stavans, Restless Books has always believed passionately in the rich contributions immigrants have made to our culture and literature. Now in its second year, we’re delighted to announce the finalists for the Restless Books Prize for New Immigrant Writing, to be awarded this year for a debut work of nonfiction by a first-generation immigrant. We’ve been bowled over by the keen insight and wide diversity of experience that these writers have boldly brought to the page. After careful deliberation, judges Anjali Singh and Ilan Stavans have selected four finalists:
