Author Event – Jennifer De Leon 5/4

We are delighted to be collaborating with the Newton Free Library, Newton North Library and a number of student/faculty organizations oriented around antiracism, to host an author discussion with Jennifer De Leon. De Leon’s novel, Don’t Ask Me Where I’m From, tells the story of Liliana Cruz, a Boston teen from an immigrant family who is accepted into the METCO program—and the challenges she faces as she is forced to confront racism at her new, white, suburban school. The program will be held on 5/4 via Zoom webinar and will be open to students, faculty, staff, and members of the Newton community. Sign-up to attend here.
