Providence Public Library (PPL) will host a community conversation entitled “Exploring the Immigrant Experience in America” from 2:00 – 4:00 pm on Sunday, October 27 in its Meeting Room (3rd Floor), 150 Empire Street, Providence.

Looking through the broad lens of the immigrant experience, the program will focus on a screening of three short interviews from Detroit Public Television’s series Arab American Stories and will be followed by a discussion reflecting on diversity, multiculturalism and the many contributions of Arab Americans and other immigrants to the richness of the American experience.

Arab American Stories is a 13-part series presented by Detroit Public Television which explores the diversity of the Arab-American experience. Hosted by NPR’s Neda Ulaby, each segment of the documentary is produced by a variety of independent filmmakers profiling Arab Americans who are making an impact in their community, their profession, their family, or the world at large.

Invited guests include: Hon. Thomas Lazieh, Former Mayor of Central Falls; Bijan Shadravan, lecturer, actor and artist; and students of the RI Family Literacy Initiative (RIFLI) and the adult education community.

Parking is available at the Providence Hilton Parking Garage: $3/3 hours. Bring ticket for stamping at the Library.
