New Faculty publication: But There Are No Palm Trees Here!

But There Are No Palm Trees Here! by Kianny Antigua (Jade Publishing, 2020), a beautiful translation by our own Elizabeth Polli!

Immigration, family, loss, profound and boundaryless love from a child perspective? This is your book!

Manu is as joyful as the waves of the coasts in Quisqueya, and as warm as her grandmother’s embrace. Even though she is happy, she has to leave behind the life she knows to go live in Queens, NY, with her mother and her half-brother. There, everything is foreign, different, or is it? Join Manu in this new adventure, in this, her new story!
