Event Details

Join us for our Teen Reading Circle program in honor of Teen Read Month. In this program we will listen and read aloud together to finish a new book. This month’s selection is I Will Always Write Back: How One Letter Changed Two Lives by Caitlin Alifirenka and Martin Ganda.
It started as an assignment. Everyone in Caitlin’s class wrote to an unknown student somewhere in a distant place.
Martin was lucky to even receive a pen-pal letter. There were only ten letters, and fifty kids in his class. But he was the top student, so he got the first one. That letter was the beginning of a correspondence that spanned six years and changed two lives. In this compelling dual memoir, Caitlin and Martin recount how they became best friends –and better people–through their long-distance exchange. Description provided by publisher.
Parents: please be aware that refreshments will be served at this program. A list of ingredients will be available.
For ages 12 – 17
