The Undocumented Americans was selected as one of the best books of the year by The New York Times Book Review, Time, NPR, The New York Public Library, Book Riot and the Library Journal. It was also named one of the ten best books of the year by Vulture. Guest host will be Myriam Gurba, editor-in-chief of "Tasteful Rude" & the author of the memoir "Mean," a New York Times Editors’ Choice.
