Logo shows the words "For Adults" in center surrounded by stars. The words "Staff Picks" appears in the lower right corner. A thumbs-up appears in the lower left corner and a CLP symbol appears in the upper right corner.

Part of welcoming is hearing and learning from stories. In the book, “The Making of a Dream,” a journalist documents and shares true stories of five different DREAMers for over a decade!

The participants took great risks in sharing their continued experiences, because of their immigration statuses.

Immigration can be a polarizing issue, but this title has been reviewed as well researched and widely appealing.
