Are you interested in learning more about the immigration crisis at the United States’ southern border? Look for John Moore’s book, Undocumented: Immigration and the Militarization of the United States-Mexico Border, coming soon to the NOVA Alexandria Library.

John Moore has spent the last decade taking photographs along the entire U.S.-Mexico border. His photo (see below) of a young Honduran girl crying as her mother was searched by Border Patrol agents was recently awarded the World Press Photo of the Year.

“No pasó nada” por Antonio Skármeta

Are you an intermediate or advanced reader of Spanish? Are you looking for a good novella to read? Look no further! No pasó nada by the Chilean author, Antonio Skármeta,  may be just the book you need. The coming of age tale takes place in 1970s Germany, where Lucho, the young narrator, is living with his family in exile from the Pinochet regime. The novella is a great way to practice your Spanish and learn about Chilean history and culture.

Fun fact: Skarmeta also wrote El cartero de Neruda, on which the Oscar-winning movie “Il Postino” was based.
