Enrique’s Journey, the next Go Big Read

June 10th, 2011

Chancellor Biddy Martin and a steering committee of campus staff have selected Sonia Nazario’s Enrique’s Journey as the 2011-2012 common book selection for the UW-Madison campus.

Enrique’s Journey recounts the true story of a young boy who travels from Central America to North Carolina to reunite with his mother. In preparing to share Enrique’s story, the author spent years researching and traveling the treacherous route that many of these immigrants take to find work in the United States.

For more information about the book, visit the author’s site for the book. And, do consult with campus and area public libraries for available copies.

Go Big Read is UW-Madison’s common book program where students, staff and the community are invited to read the same book then participate in a variety of related programs in-and-out of the classroom.

Go Big Read will welcome your participation with this new title during the forthcoming academic year.
