The Janesville League of Women Voters’ Diversity Committee will host three dates in November for discussion of the book “In the Country We Love: My Family Divided” by Diane Guerrero.

Guerrero, a television actress from “Orange is the New Black” and “Jane the Virgin,” was 14 when her parents were detained and deported while she was at school. Since she was born in the U.S. she was able to remain in the country and continue her education.

The book discussions will talk about issues the memoir raises on the experiences of undocumented residents and their impact on the U.S.

The events will take place at 9:30 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 4, at Hedberg Public Library, 316 S. Main St.; 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 7, at Hilltop International Pub, 121 E. Milwaukee St.; and 9:30 a.m. Thursday, Nov. 9, at Hedberg Public Library.
