Parent:  book talk shed light on everyday issues

The Glenbard Parent Series kicked off this year's programming by hosting Pulitzer Prize winning reporter Sonia Nazario, the author of "Enrique's Journey." The book was selected as this year's community read.

Glenbard North parent Tanya Czapiewski shared the following takeaway from last night's program: "I felt that Sonia hit all the key points around the complexity of children fleeing from a violent situation. In today's society, we have to protect children no matter where they are from. Let's examine the laws; let's look at innovative ways to improve their lives in their native lands as well. I felt that Sonia's message was very powerful, and I understand why the book was a suggested summer read. It is important for students to understand these real-life issues - issues that children face every day.
