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  examines 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 January, author Rivka Galchen attended our Book Club to discuss her novel, American Innovations.  In February, parents discussed Claudia Rankine's Citizen:  An American Lyric, which was a finalist for the 2014 National Book Award.  Our next Book Club will be held on March 8 at 6:00pm. Mr. Getz has chosen 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."

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