Denver Alumnae Chapter of Kappa Alpha Theta

This month’s book: The Newcomers: Finding Refuge, Friendship, and Hope in an American Classroom  by Helen Thorpe.

Award-winning, “meticulously observant” (The New Yorker) local author Helen Thorpe (aka Mrs. John Hickenlooper) offers this powerful and moving account of how refugee teenagers at Denver’s South High School learned English and become Americans. The Newcomers follows the lives of 22 immigrant teens throughout the course of the 2015-2016 school year and the English Language Acquisition class created specifically for them.

Discussion led by Gemma Smith. Bring a snack/dinner, beverage, and chair.

RSVP via Evite. Contact Nancy Ives or Gemma Smith with questions.
