IMMIGRANT OF THE DAY: LUCETTE LAGNADO - JOURNALIST/AUTHOR

Rate this Entry

Lagnado
A few months back, I was in New York attending a board meeting of the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, the country's oldest refugee assistance organization. At our lunch session, we had the honor of hearing a talk from Wall Street Journal reporter Lucette Lagnado, an investigative journalist who told us her family's immigration story. Ms. Lagnado is an Egyptian Jew whose family came to the US in the 1950s when she was a girl. The transition from a well-to-do Cairo family to struggling refugees in New York was difficult, but so similar to many families in similar circumstances in generations past and today.

Sharkskin
Ms. Lagnado has written a wonderful book about her family's experience entitled The Man in the White Sharkskin Suit. I'm enjoying reading it on my vacation this week (I had to wait as the book was passed around in my family). The book has garnered very high ratings on Amazon as well.
