with Sonia Nazario August 23, 2017 at 7pm Glenbard East
The Glenbard Parent Series has selected Enrique's Journey as its Common Read for 2017. Enrique's Journey first appeared in the Los Angeles Times as a Pulitzer Prize winning series written by reporter Sonia Nazario. Nazario expanded the article into a book which has won numerous awards and is on the required reading list of many colleges and high schools across the country. Many Glenbard students will be reading the middle school version of this book. This national best seller is the story of a Honduran boy's search for his mother in the US, the struggle of a family to unite and their fight to heal deep
wounds. In the book Nazario asks questions about the economic, social and human factors in the debate about America's newcomers. Please join us when we welcome Sonia Nazario to Glenbard East at 7pm on Wednesday, August 23 as part of the Glenbard Parent Series.
