Francisco Jiménez - The Migrant Experience: A Personal Story

author image


As a child, Francisco Jiménez emigrated from Tlaquepaque, Mexico, to California, where he worked for many years in the fields with his family. Despite the struggles in his formative years, he became an educator and award-winning author of The Circuit: Stories from the Life of A Migrant Child and its three sequels.  Dr. Jiménez will share his personal story with a backdrop of images from his youth. He will discuss his reasons for writing, the importance that education played in his life, and the value of the immigrant experience in our diverse society.

Sponsored by Escobar-Dison Family Grant, A.K. Smiley Public Library Endowment Fund, and donations from the community to Friends of A.K. Smiley Public Library, Adult Literacy Program.
