‘How to Become An American’ Author Event

The Mill City Museum and the Jewish Historical Society of the Upper Midwest are pleased to present an event with the author of

HOW TO BECOME AN AMERICAN
BY
DANIEL WOLFF

The book examines the sweeping history of immigration into the United States through the experiences of one unnamed, seemingly unremarkable Jewish family, and, in the process, makes their lives remarkable.

It is a deeply human odyssey that journeys from pre-Civil War Charleston, South Carolina, to post-World War II Minneapolis, Minnesota. In some ways, the family’s journey parallels that of the nation, as it struggled to define itself through the Industrial Age.

An aching loneliness permeates this story, raising the question of why a country that prides itself on being “a nation of immigrants,” where “all men are created equal,” leaves so many feeling alone.
