The Newcomers with Helen Thorpe
Thursday, November 30, 2017 – 6:00pm
Returning to the store is best-selling author Helen Thorpe. This time with a story of survival, acceptance and triumph. Twenty-two stories that are relevant to our community, our government policies and our world today. The Newcomers follows the lives of twenty-two immigrant teenagers throughout the course of the 2015-2016 school year as they land at South High School in Denver, Colorado. Speaking no English, unfamiliar with American culture, their stories are poignant and remarkable as they face the enormous challenge of adapting. These newcomers, from fourteen to nineteen years old, come from nations convulsed by drought or famine or war.
