Michel Stone’s debut novel, set against the backdrop of illegal immigration, is one family’s story of fateful decisions, risky border crossings, and a struggle for humanity. “The Iguana Tree” is the suspenseful saga of Lilia and Hector, who separately make their way from Mexico into the United States, seeking work in the Carolinas and a home for their infant daughter. Stone's harrowing novel meticulously examines the obstacles each faces in pursuing a new life. And as always, events at Park Road Books are free and open to the public.
