LO lawyer to share facts on immigration at LCA

The book selection for the Lake Oswego Reads program is "The Book of Unknown Americans" by Cristina Henriquez. It is a story which follows two immigrant teens, described as a story "filled with love, guilt, hope, promise and despair, as it examines the relationships between husband and a wife, parent and a child, and the newcomer and the outsider, in the fertile yet fragile landscape of the American dream."
Marandas grew up in Lake Oswego and graduated from Lakeridge High School. While at Lakeridge he learned to speak Spanish to impress his girlfriend and her parents. They are now married.
Marandas graduated from Santa Clara Univesity with a bachelor's degree in political science and received his JD degree from Willamette University College of Law.
