The National Endowment for the Arts, or NEA, Big Read kicks off its month-long programming in the mid-Michigan area at 7 p.m. on Thursday in the Green Room of Michigan State University’s Main Library with a screening of “What Happens to a Dream Deferred.”

This short film highlights a day in the life of two Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, recipients, José Badillo-Carlos and Osvaldo Sandoval, both graduate students at MSU, after the Trump administration’s decision to rescind the DACA program.

Following the screening, there will be a panel discussion with both Badillo-Carlos and Sandoval, as well as Veronica Thronson, director of the MSU Immigration Law Clinic.
