Train to Nowhere Book Club
On a grammatical note, tears welled in my eyes at the accurate punctuation of "20s" (35). Yet, my anal English-teacher self cringed at the repetitive use of the words "got" and "things" which (in my opinion) would have read much cleaner and clearer with the use of active verbs and concrete nouns respectively as replacements.
For the purposes of book club, no food or drink allowed. This meeting does not call for feasting and merriment. Instead, a productive talk about how an individual can act as an instrument of change regarding the immigration situation in this country. Furthermore, a viewing of the accompanying documentary Train to Nowhere: Inside an Immigrant Death Investigation will only further place the reader inside this journalistic must-read.
