Coming to America

October 2015

America is a melting pot, a nation of immigrants with over 41,000,000 of our 316,497,531 total population identifying as ‘’foreign born’ in 2013.  And let’s not forget about all of us who are the children of immigrants and have likely heard stories about how our own families came to this country.  Take a journey with these writers all of whom have remarkable stories to tell about coming to America.
