Valeria Luiselli’s book, Tell Me How It Ends, is this year’s first-year book. The publication is structured around 40 questions that Luiselli translates and asks undocumented Latin American children who are facing deportation. Dr. Luiselli “humanizes these young migrants and highlights the contradiction between the idea of America as a fiction for immigrants and the reality of racism and fear – both here and back home.” Tell Me How it Ends was a finalist for the Kirkus Prize in Nonfiction and the National Books Critics Circle Award in Criticism. Luiselli is an award-winning Mexican author whose work has appeared in publications, such as The New York Times, The New Yorker, Granta, and McSweeney’s.
