Hearing immigrants' voices

The Painted Bride Art Center at 230 Vine St. in the Old City section of Philadelphia is hosting a performance titled "Underground America" from 8:30 to 10:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 12. It is a reading of oral histories by undocumented immigrants.
After the performance, Peter Orner (editor of the book "Underground America: Narratives of Undocumented Lives"), two lawyers and the director of HIAS and Council Migration Service of Philadelphia address the legal, economic and humanitarian issues surrounding the immigration debate.
The event costs $15. Call 215-925-9914 for more information.
