American Writers Museum Presents: Laila Lalami. This program will be streamed live online.
What does it mean to be American? In this starkly illuminating and impassioned book, Pulitzer Prize–finalist LAILA LALAMI recounts her unlikely journey from Moroccan immigrant to U.S. citizen, using it as a starting point for her exploration of the rights, liberties, and protections that are traditionally associated with American citizenship.

Presented in conjunction with the American Writers Museum's special exhibit My America: Immigrant and Refugee Writers Today, this program is part of the Jeanne M. & John W. Rowe program series, a series of conversations with leading contemporary writers about their latest work and their thoughts on themes of identity, home, belonging and the meaning of what it is to be American.
