Coming Together in Skokie

Posted on January 13, 2010. Filed under: Fiction | Tags: |

Have you heard? Oakton Community College is teaming up with various groups and institutions in the Skokie area for a new program called Coming Together in Skokie! This is the first year of the program, but the hope is to celebrate a different culture in Skokie each year.  This year’s program features the Asian Indian population. As a starting point to explore Indian culture, everyone is invited to read the book, Motherland, by author Vineeta Vijayaraghavan. In addition to public book discussions held throughout Skokie, there are many programs scheduled at OCC’s Skokie Campus, Skokie Public Library, and the District 219 high schools! So stop by the library to pick up your copy of Motherland and join in the festivities!

There are copies of the book available at both campuses.

If you’d like to know a little more about Motherland, read the NY Times review.
