NPR correspondent Aarti Shahani will visit to discuss her new memoir, Here We Are: American Dreams, American Nightmares.

Aarti Namdev Shahani is a correspondent for NPR based in Silicon Valley, covering the largest companies on earth. Her reporting has received awards from the Society of Professional Journalists, a regional Edward R. Murrow Award, and an Investigative Reporters & Editors Award. Before journalism, Shahani was a community organizer in New York City, helping prisoners and families facing deportation. 

Shahani’s heartfelt new memoir, Here We Are: American Dreams, American Nightmares, follows the lives of Aarti, the precocious scholarship kid at one of Manhattan's most elite prep schools, and her dad, the shopkeeper who mistakenly sells watches and calculators to the notorious Cali drug cartel. Together, the two represent the extremes that coexist in our country, even within a single family, and a truth about immigrants that gets lost in the headlines. Here We Are is a coming-of-age story and a love letter from an outspoken modern daughter to her soft-spoken Old World father. 

Books will be available for purchase and signing courtesy of Mac's Backs - Books on Coventry.
