Left Bank Books
Left Bank Books and the International Institute welcome psychologist, author, and St. Louis native Adrianne Aron, who will sign and discuss her new book, Human Rights and Wrongs!
A broken immigration system leaves a child in Arizona without parents and a man in El Salvador without children. But there’s much to celebrate, too, like positive outcomes in asylum hearings, the beauty of volunteer efforts that ransom a student out of immigration detention, the helicopter rescue of a writer lost in the woods. You will come away from Human Rights and Wrongs knowing more about motivation, fear, risk-taking, and problem solving than when you began. You will be more informed about the conditions of oppression that force people to flee their countries, and the conditions of human support and solidarity that help them rebuild shattered lives. Adrianne Aron’s book is both instructive and uplifting, and a fierce rebuke to anti-immigrant voices.
"Combining the qualities of a psychologist, a political activist, and a skilled writer, Aron draws the reader close to individuals' experiences while informing the reader about recent histories of governmental violence...Human Rights and Wrongs teaches the reader both compassion and justice." —Tom F. Driver, Union Theological Seminary
