The most headline-grabbing stories about immigration tend to focus on undocumented immigration into the U.S. from Central and South America. And those stories are usually linked to President Donald Trump’s national emergency declaration to build a new wall.

But an often overlooked form of immigration are legal visas that permit immigrants to accept certain jobs, such as high-skilled positions in the tech industry.

Tanu Ghosh works in that industry at Intel and has explored different angles of immigration and diversity in her collection of fiction, "From An-Other Land: Making Home in the Land of Dreams."

She's talking about it on Saturday night at Changing Hands Bookstore in Tempe, and The Show spoke to her about it.
