Nonfiction Book Club

May 20, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am



*Please note: this month we are meeting on the 3rd Saturday (the 4th Saturday is on Memorial day weekend and the library is closed)

This month, we will discuss Beautiful Country: a memoir of an undocumented childhood by Qian Julie Wang.  

About this memoir, from Penguin Random House:  “In Chinese, the word for America, Mei Guo, translates directly to ‘beautiful country.’ Yet when seven-year-old Qian arrives in New York City in 1994 full of curiosity, she is overwhelmed by crushing fear and scarcity. In China, Qian’s parents were professors; in America, her family is ‘illegal’ and it will require all the determination and small joys they can muster to survive.”

Copies of this book are available at the library. 


Our discussion will be held in a hybrid format.  The host will be in person at the BFL, while some members will join over zoom.  You are welcome to join either way.  For zoom, please register here to receive the meeting details:
