Principals' Book Club

   

All parents are invited to join our book-loving principals for monthly gatherings in the ESMS Library.  The Principally For Parents Book Club  explores books chosen by Mr. Getz and Mr. Colon, including notable fiction and non-fiction for adults as well as interesting books currently being read by our middle school children.  Please consult the website calendar for the specific date each month.

 In March we read J.D. Vance's riveting memoir, Hillbilly Elegy.  This New York Times Bestseller has received praise throughout the literary community, including The Economist 's review proclaiming "You will not read a more important book about America this year."

Please note that our April Book Club has been canceled due to a scheduling conflict.  Please join us for our next meeting on Wednesday, May 17th at 6:00pm.  Mr. Getz has selected Trevor Noah's hilarious  and highly-praised memoir, Born A Crime: Stories From a South African Childhood.

If you plan to attend the Principally For Parents Book Club, please email our Parent Coordinator.
