Author to Speak at Central College’s Writers Reading Series

Author Sonia Nazario will speak at Central College’s fall 2009 Writers Reading series Thursday. Nazario, a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, will read from her book Enrique’s Journey, which was Central’s 2009 freshman one-read book.

The book tells the story of a Honduran boy’s struggle to find his mother after she leaves him to go to America to raise money for her family and chronicles Enrique’s astonishing adventure of hopefully entering the United States to find his mother after over 10 years of broken promises from her to come back and get him.

The public is invited to hear Nazario speak at the free event, which will be held in Cox-Snow Recital Hall on the Central College campus at 7:30 p.m. Thursday night.
