More Good News for Sonia Nazario’s Enrique’s Journey!

Sonia Nazario’s Enrique’s Journey is one of three finalists for the 2012 One Book, One Denver program.  The winner will be chosen by popular vote before June 22. Even more good news, Enrique’s Journey has also been selected as the First-Year Experience title for both Cabrini College in Philadelphia and University of Wisconsin, La Crosse. All incoming freshmen at both colleges will be reading this book for the Fall of 2012.

More than 50 colleges and seven cities have chosen Enrique’s Journey for their common or one city reads. Many colleges select the book because it goes beyond a platform to talk about immigration. While encouraging global awareness, the book provides broad and deep discussions of large themes students grapple with: loss and hope, survival, community, family, diversity, and redemption. Students relate to a boy close to their own age who steels himself with great determination to get through difficult circumstances.
