Group Statement

Annually Lake Oswego Public Library invites the entire community to participate in Lake Oswego Reads program. This year the 13th annual book selection is Cristina Henríquez’s The Book of Unknown Americans. It is a story of hope and dreams, guilt and love and a book that offers a new definition of what it means to be American. It examines life in America today from the points of view of various immigrants, primarily the Toros and Riveras families, but it also gives short insights into the backgrounds, aspirations, and overall lives of others living in the apartment complex of the story.

As part of Lake Oswego Reads, these 20 artists interpreted different aspects of the book they found inspiring.
