April's book is Call Me American: A Memoir by Abdi Nor Iftin. Abdi loved the U.S. so much he became known around Mogadishu as Abdi American, but when the radical Islamist group al-Shabaab rose to power in 2006 Abdi was eventually forced to flee to Kenya. He won entrance to the U.S. though his route to America did not come easily. Now a proud resident of Maine, his dramatic, deeply stirring memoir is truly a story for our time: a vivid reminder of why America still beckons to those looking to make a better life. Cheryl P. will lead discussion.
