Published: Oct 12 2010 12:00AM

To commemorate United Nations day, bestselling author and journalist Steven Roberts will talk about the immigrant experience on Thursday, October 21, 11 a.m. at Montgomery College-Rockville. The event, free and open to the public, will be held in the Theatre Arts Arena.

Roberts is the author of "From Every End of This Earth: 13 Families and the New Lives They Made in America." The book profiles immigrants from countries including China and Afghanistan, Mexico and Sierra Leone, who have journeyed to the United States in pursuit of the same dream that propelled Roberts' own grandparents to leave Russia and Poland a century ago. He combines compelling interviews and meticulous research to produce an engaging, accessible narrative that explores each family's original yet deeply resonant story. A book signing will follow the talk.

Roberts has been a journalist for more than 45 years, including positions at U.S. News and World Report and the New York Times, where he was a bureau chief in Los Angeles and Athens, and a correspondent to Congress and the White House. Roberts and his wife, television journalist and author Cokie Roberts, write a popular nationally syndicated newspaper column.

He is also the author of "My Father's Houses" and coauthor of the New York Times bestseller "From This Day Forward."

A well-known commentator on many Washington-based television shows, Roberts appears regularly as a political analyst on the ABC radio network and National Public Radio. Since 1997 he has been the Shapiro Professor of Media and Public Affairs at George Washington University, where he has taught for the past 19 years.
