Author talk with Mark Hehl

November 6 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Much has been documented about the experiences of immigrants after they arrived in North America during the mass migration period from 1880 to 1920.  There is less information available about the agonizing decision to leave everything behind and venture into the unknown. Mark Hehl, the author of the book An Immigrant’s Dilemma, will take us back to this time and explore the factors that caused these individuals to make this agonizing decision. He will also explain what conditions were like aboard these ships in steerage class for immigrants.

Mark will also provide a glimpse into his third book Ameri-Sicula: Sicilian Culture in America.

Mark Hehl is an engineer, consultant, and public speaker. He is the author of the books: An Immigrant’s Dilemma, Amusing Confessions of an International Consultant and Ameri-SiculaSicilian Culture in America.  Mark is a keynote speaker at various worldwide locations and has been a frequent guest on national public radio. He is the son of a Sicilian-American mother and spent his early years around his Sicilian relatives.
