Laila Lalami, a Moroccan native, came across a newspaper article about 15 Moroccan immigrants who drowned while crossing the Straits of Gibraltar in a fishing boat. Inspired to imagine the stories of the people facing that kind of journey, she wrote the powerful "Hope and Other Dangerous Pursuits", our Spring 2018 Common Read selection for MCC-Maple Woods.
