Read the World

Thanks to funding from the NHS Education Fund, author Allan Stratton will be visiting our high school and community to discuss his book, Chanda’s Secrets, on October 27. The book, which is set in Sub-Saharan Africa, will be read this fall in ninth-grade English classes and the region will be studied in World Cultures classes. As a derivative of this event, the high school library has partnered with the Free Library of New Hope and Solebury and the NHS Education Fund to create a community reading program called Read the World. Read the World provides a list of book suggestions as well as various community presentations offered in October which explore African cultures.
