The Tennessee State Museum hosts a wide range of FREE, fascinating events and educational programs throughout the year. Advance reservations are not required, unless indicated on the listing. For seated events, seats are provided on a first-come, first-served basis.
To celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month in September, the Tennessee Book Club will be reading The Book of Isaias: A Child of Hispanic Immigrants Seeks His Own America. A product of over five years of investigative journalism, author Daniel Connolly’s narrative immerses readers in the life of a Memphis teen who is an undocumented immigrant as he navigates the college admissions process and the emotional and administrative complexities attached.
Connolly will SKYPE into the discussion to chat with book club attendees and answer questions. It's a rare opportunity to talk with the author about his research and the book.
Following the discussion, guests are welcome to accompany museum staff to view our section on Tennessee immigrants in our Tennessee Transforms gallery.
