Students from France, Spain, Korea, Japan, Hong Kong, Russia and Brazil celebrated World Book Night in New York City during their Tuesday, April 23rd session of English in Action. Their conversation partners presented them with copies of The House on Mango Street, by Sandra Cisneros.

They were urged to read the books and then pass them along to someone else. The House on Mango Street was selected because of its focus on the immigrant experience in the US.
