Deepak Singh at Festival of the Book 2012

It was such a delight to attend the Cultural Leaps session on Friday at this year’s Festival of the book.

As an ESL tutor/mentor, I am very interested in newcomers’ impressions after arriving in America from other lands.    All of the presentations were excellent, but very special for me was hearing Deepak Singh and having a chance to get an autographed copy of his book Chasing America: Of Lollipops, Night Clubs & Ferocious Dogs.
