One School Book for 2017/18

We are excited to announce the book for this summer’s One Book, One School read.  This year we chose the fiction book, City of Orphans, by Avi. The book is both historical fiction and a mystery. According to Common Sense Media, “The novel frankly depicts the immigrant experience in turn-of-the-century New York and shows what life in a tenement would have been like. It also shows what it was like when newspapers were an important part of daily life.”  With themes of family, friendship, the immigrant experience in the early 1900s, and the role of journalism, there will be much to discuss when we return to school in the fall.

See the ECMS Library website soon for additional information about the book and its award-winning author, as well as information about acquiring the book.
