Dreams for Our Children: Immigrant Letters to the Future

Dream for Our Children: Immigrant Letters to the Future.

LinDa Saphan contributed a piece "What's in a Name?" The story behind the meaning of her name and her personal journey to reclaim my cultural heritage and identity through a letter written to her 10 year old daughter.

This book project was created during the lockdown and it is quite an uplifting project from immigrants sharing their experiences and stories.

The book can be purchased at Barnes and Nobles
