    Main Library Book Group: The Newcomers by Helen Thorpe

    Join us for a discussion of this celebrated novel from the award-winning author of Soldier Girls and Just Like Us. The Newcomers is an “extraordinary” (The Denver Post) account of refugee teenagers at a Denver public high school and their compassionate teacher and “a reminder that in an era of nativism, some Americans are still breaking down walls and nurturing the seeds of the great American experiment” (The New York Times Book Review).
