The book

Routes to Reading – Stories of Immigration

Why did people come from all over the world to settle in Reading, UK? What did they find when they got here?

Book cover

These uplifting stories tell of people's struggle to make a life, of self-determination and hard work, of overcoming hostility and isolation, of giving and receiving friendship, of integration and identity.

Told directly by the people themselves, these life experiences bear testimony to the valuable contribution made to Reading by its multicultural community.

Readers of all ages will enjoy these stories which are neither academic study nor scientific record but life experience as told by those who lived it.
