Letters to Rose
Sponsored by the Friends of JISD Libraries, the presentation will be open to all schools, families and employees in JISD. Parents are welcome to attend with your younger children, who may have questions following Rose’s very detailed account of her life as a prisoner in several concentration camps. As you can imagine, the subject matter may be frightening and sad at times.
Before and after the presentation, the authors, will have signed books available for purchase as follows: paperback ($16.23) and hardcover ($27). Rose will also dedicate books and will be available for photos.
This event is free and open to all JISD families, employees and community members. For questions or concerns please contact your school librarian or lead librarian, Pamela Arevalo-Thompson at email@example.com. Please join us for this night of unforgettable historical significance.
Friends of Judson Libraries
We are currently talking with the Universal City Library to bring author and illustrator Xavier Garza, a San Antonio native, to the UC Library in July.
Our goal is to host an author or illustrator in each of the seven municipalities that JISD serves. Do you know an author or illustrator? Do you know of a venue that would host us in Live Oak, Kirby, Schertz, Selma, or San Antonio near Wagner? If so, let Pamela Thompson know about it! You may reach her at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 210-619-0220. Ask for the library! We appreciate your help and support!
