Brooke Hauser, author of The New Kids: Big Dreams and Grave Journeys at a High School for Immigrant Teens, will speak at 8 p.m. Thursday (Nov. 7) in the Phoenix Room of the University Union. An award-winning author, journalist, teacher, and lecturer who has written for The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, and Allure, Hauser chronicled a year at Brooklyn’s International High School at Prospect Heights, a vibrant public school that serves recently arrived immigrants and refugees from around the world. New Kids was a 2012 winner of the American Library Association’s Alex Award, given to the ten best books written for adults that appeal to teens. The New York Times wrote, “Ms. Hauser’s book is a refreshing reminder of the hurdles newcomers to this country still face and how many defy the odds to overcome them.” Her Thursday night lecture is free and open to the public. It is sponsored by Student Life as part of the University’s 2013-2014 Common Theme: Global Citizenship in an Evolving World.
