Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Jose Antonio Vargas joins us to talk about his new memoir, Dear America: Notes of an Undocumented Citizen. A prominent public voice representing the undocumented community, Vargas’ memoir steers away from the politics of immigration and speaks candidly to his experiences of hiding and lying to get by as an undocumented person. An alumnus of Mountain View High School and San Francisco State University, Vargas returns to the Bay Area for a poignant, personal conversation on what it means to not have a home.
