|The Registry Room at Ellis Island|
On Friday, I'll be sharing some of those stories. They've made their way into my latest book Hope and Tears: Ellis Island Voices (Calkins Creek/Boyds Mills Press). It's a collection of fictional vignettes and photographs covering the long history of Ellis Island.
To celebrate the book's publication, we're throwing a party at Red Balloon Bookshop in St. Paul.
The party starts at seven o'clock in the evening with a brief reading, time for questions, and then cake.
Please join me if you can. I'm looking forward to slinging stories and handing out a few door prizes. Bring your own stories of Ellis Island to share. My kids are coming too, not so much for the stories but for the cake.
