An American Family: by Khizr Khan | Conversation Starters
Khizr Khan became a national sensation when he spoke before fellow Americans in the 2016 Democratic National Convention. Khan, a Goldstar father,called on then presidential candidate Donald Trump to stop his attacks on American Muslims. While Khan sacrificed his son, Trump sacrificed no one in his family, he said. He asked Trump to read the US Constitution and offered to lend him his pocket copy. An American Family is Khan’s account of his struggle to become an American citizen and what it means to be a true American. This inspiring and moving account of an immigrant lawyer from Pakistan is cited one of the year’s best memoirs by The Washington Post.
