St. Anne's Dining and Performing Arts Hall
Please join the St. Anne's Parents' Association and ONE St. Anne's in welcoming Heather Thorpe, author of the critically acclaimed book The Newcomers: Finding Refuge, Friendship, and Hope in an American Classroom that profiles 22 newly arrived teenagers at South High School. Thorpe captures their stories, those of their families, the often harrowing journeys that have brought them to the United States, their tireless and inspiring English language teacher, and their hopes to “be American."
