92nd Street Y: The Immigrant Experience: Becoming Americans with Jessica Hagedorn, Jamaica Kincaid & more

I am very excited! I just won two tickets to the 92nd Street Y's lecture on The Immigrant Experience on Feb. 1, 2010.

The event is to commemorate the publication of the Library of America's Becoming Americans" Four Centuries of Immigrant Writing - an anthology that features letters, poems, journal entries, memoirs, essays and other fiction. Jessica Hagedorn, Jamaica Kincaid, Norman Manea and Gary Shteyngart will visit the Poetry Center, read excerpts from the book and discuss their personal experiences.

The moderator for the evening will be Ilan Stavans, the editor of the anthology. If you'd like to attend, you can pick up tickets at the 92nd Street Y website at

  1. That is really great, Gaby!! Congratulations, and remember to tell us all about it.

  2. This sounds so interesting! I have a commitment that night or I would definitely get tickets - being the daughter of immigrants I have a real interest in immigrant literature.

    Can't wait to hear about it from you!
