Join award-winning journalist and freelance writer Masha Rumer at Books Inc. Alameda in celebration of her engaging book, Parenting with an Accent: How Immigrants Honor Their Heritage, Navigate Setbacks, and Chart New Paths for Their Children.

Through her own stories and interviews with other immigrant families, Masha Rumer paints a realistic and compassionate picture of what it's like for immigrant parents raising a child in America while honoring their cultural identities. Parenting with an Accent incorporates a diverse collection of voices and experiences, giving readers an intimate look at the lives of many different immigrant families across the country. Using empirical data, humor, and on-the-ground reportage, Rumer offers interviews with experts on various aspects of parenting as an immigrant, including the challenges of acculturation, bilingualism strategies, and childcare. She visits a children's Amharic class at an Ethiopian church in New York, a California vegetable farm, a Persian immersion school, and more.

Deeply researched yet personal, Parenting with an Accent centers immigrants and their experiences in a new country--emphasizing how immigrants and their children remain an integral part of America's story.

One of Books Inc.’s favorite aspects of being booksellers is getting the chance to welcome and host hundreds of authors a year, from house-hold names to local, debut authors and we look forward to continuing to provide the Bay Area with “The Experience You Can’t Download” in our stores with traditional author talks and booksignings. In the meantime, we have an exciting list of virtual events and meet-and-greet booksignings on our calendar and we look forward welcoming you into this new format.

Sales equate success, and as with in-store events, booksales made from an independent bookstore benefit the author, publisher, and lead to future event bookings. Please help us keep the Bay Area the wonderful literary hub that it is by supporting your local Books Inc.
