Meet Author Margaret Regan Tuesday Afternoon

Posted By on Mon, Oct 19, 2015 at 5:00 PM

Author and longtime TW arts correspondent Margaret Regan will be reading from her latest book, Detained and Deported: Stories of Immigrant Families Under Fire, at noon on Tuesday, Oct. 20, at the UNICEF store in Monterrey Village, 6242 E. Speedway Blvd.

Detained and Deported tells the stories of how undocumented immigrants have seen their families torn apart here in the United States and examines the miserable conditions at the private prisons where many of them are housed.

Publishers Weekly called the book "an authentic look at people caught between borders." Library Journal found it to be "heartbreaking, thorough, and insightful." Kirkus Reviews said it was a "timely look at the inhumane effects of immigration policies in the United States… Regan's books bring into focus the fates of undocumented people fighting against the odds to make it into America and then, if they get here, struggling, and often failing, to build a life.” And me? I thought it was great. Go hear Regan read, pick up a book, and get it autographed.
