Grab your friends and head over to the next Lunch @ the Library discussion which will be featuring the book Untwine by Edwidge Danticat. This heartfelt, inspirational book is available for all students to read and discover another point of view on being thankful for their life. A Lunch @ the Library discussion will be held for students interested in giving their opinion about the book.
Edwidge Danticat is a Haitian born writer who is best known for her book “Untwine.” This book is about twin sisters, Giselle and Isabelle Boyer, whose lives are falling apart as their family begins to have an abundance of problems. Suddenly, Giselle finds herself stuck in a hospital room, unable to remember the events that caused her to end up there, and her family is nowhere to be found. Untwine follows her journey to discovering many unanswered questions she has about her life, and it is an inspiring story filled with love and heartbreak that will leave the readers wanting more.
Danticat will be visiting PPCHS on November 30th, 2016 during sixth period to talk to the readers about her works of literature. “She is going to speak about her books, and the AICE Language classes and AICE Literature read books by her so the school is already discussing her work,” said National English Honor Society President, Linsey Adams.
The Lunch @ the Library discussion will be held on Monday, November 28th during fourth period. Students who read the book will be invited to go to the library and discuss their opinions and thoughts about the book while munching on pizza. Visit Ms. Oltmans in S225 on Thursday or Friday morning or see her in the Library Media Center office to check out the book and receive a pass to attend the Lunch @ the Library.
