    Welcome to its next meeting the Book Club will discuss American Passage, The History of Ellis Island by Vincent Cannato. In this well-written and evocative book, Mr. Cannato, Professor of History at the University of Massachusetts, does a masterful job of weaving together singular immigrant stories with the larger issues that confronted newcomers to America.
