About: Tapping into the hot topic of immigrants, author Roger Higgins’s timely book Billy Gogan, American follows the life of an orphaned Irish child who immigrated to America in 1844. 'I chose this time period because it was really at the cusp of the modern era,' says author Roger Higgins. 'The biggest challenge was staying alive. It was putting food on the table, or in this case in Billy’s mouth. It was having somewhere to live, some shelter.' This riveting historical fiction is told in the first person, which lends an immediacy to the story that will reverberate with readers.
