Jose Antonio Vargas
More than 15 years as a working journalist, Jose Vargas has interviewed some of the most accomplished people in America, worked for The New Yorker and The Washington Post, and shared in a Pulitzer Prize. For 14 of those years, he hid the fact that he is an undocumented immigrant, “living in a different kind of reality, relying on a sort of 21st-century underground railroad of supporters, people who took an interest in my future and took risks for me.”
This event is open to the public. Admission is $10. Tickets may be purchased online or at the door. Free for all Elmhurst College students, faculty, staff and alumni.
