No subject is more central to the current political and moral climate of this country, and to Texas in particular, than immigration. Why immigrants come, what they face, and how they fare here are issues explored in many recent novels. In this class, we will discuss three examples that depict immigration to the USA from China, India, and Haiti. Each discussion-based class will explore one novel, including some lecture, but mostly focus on the conversation.


Bonnie Lyons retired in May 2014 with emeritus status from the University of Texas in San Antonio. She has taught and lectured in Greece, Italy, Spain, Israel, and England. She’s the author of Passion and Craft, In Other Words, Bedrock, and Henry Roth: A Man and His Work. Her most recent book, WOW: Wonderful Old Women, contains interviews with thirteen San Antonio women ages eighty years and older.
