The book goes beyond praising talented immigrants to

explore their mindset, cultural specificities and their high level
of determination and innovative thinking. The book also
touches upon the issue of anti-immigration attitudes, in turn,
suggesting how Americans need to tap their ‘inner immigrant’

Sponsors of the launch party include Huntington Bank, the high-tech

trade group TiE Ohio, and the Hispanic Chambers of Commerce of Ohio.
More than three dozen globally-minded civic and business groups have
signed on as co-sponsors. (See attached flyer.)
“The authors’ passion comes through in this fantastic book that points to
the power and importance of intercultural partnerships in a global
economy,” says Connie Atkins, executive director of the Consortium of
African American Organizations, which is co-sponsoring the launch

"This book, filled with stirring stories testifying to the ongoing power of
the American Dream as a magnet, challenges us all to build an inclusive
culture of welcome, access, opportunity and empowerment,” said
Leonard M. Calabrese, president of Catholic Community Connection,
another co-sponsor.

The party runs from 6 to 9 p.m. at Speakeasy, a new nightclub beneath
