Meet Julissa Arce: Author of
My (Underground) American Dream
Saturday, September 17
For an undocumented immigrant, what is the true cost of the American dream? Julissa Arce’s memoir tells the story of how she learned she was an undocumented immigrant on the day of her quinceañera, before conquering the corporate ladder at Goldman Sachs.
Join Julissa at Queens Library for a discussion of her memoir, as well as her experience of being a woman on male-dominated Wall Street, the stigma of being undocumented, and navigating a multicultural identity in America. The discussion will be moderated byAssemblymember Francisco Moya of the 39th Assembly District.
After the discussion, Julissa will take part in a Q&A session, followed by a book signing.
This program is available in English (at 2pm) and Spanish (at 3:15pm). Free tickets are available for both sessions!
