EAST BAY BOOKSELLERS welcomes JJ Mulligan Sepulveda to discuss his new new book No Human Is Illegal, on Thursday, March 21 at 7pm. He will be joined by Lauren Markham.

The perfect author on one of today's hottest topics-- an immigration reform lawyer's journalistic memoir of being on the front lines of deportation.

NO HUMAN IS ILLEGAL is a powerful document of one lawyer's fight for those seeking a better life in America against its ever-tightening borders. For author Mulligan Sepúlveda, the son and husband of Spanish-speaking immigrants, the battle for immigration reform is personal. Mulligan Sepúlveda writes of visiting border detention centers, defending undocumented immigrants in court, and taking his services to JFK to represent people being turned away at the gates during Trump's infamous travel ban.
