This week on Alt.Latino, we pay tribute to immigrant stories. With the help of Cuban-American writer and editor Achy Obejas, we're bringing you readings by celebrated authors on the topic of immigration, from Latin America to Asia, Africa and the Middle East. It's all part of a new book called Immigrant Voices: 21st Century Stories, edited by Obejas and Megan Bayles.

While music isn't the centerpiece of this show, we are featuring Cuban pianist Omar Sosa. And as always, we're eager to hear from you. Feel free to share your own immigration stories in the comments section below. Where did you and your family come from? Where are you thinking of going?
