Bean Pickers, American Immigrant Portraits
2019, Jacob's Press, Inc.,
Hempson’s creative non-fiction Bean Pickers would be an important book in any time in our social, cultural, and political life, but now is the perfect time for this book to appear on the national scene. Hempson’s beautiful narrative of her Italian American family who came as immigrants is the recipe for understanding our new wave of immigrants and the critical importance of looking beyond prejudices to the mighty contributions of those who have come and will continue to come from other shores.
