Newcomers School Presentation

Sunday November 4 at 3pm – Scuppernong Books

The Newcomers School is a magnet school in the Guilford County School System which focuses on Immigrant and refugee children who are transitioning to English language based education. After one year at the Newcomers School, students move to their normally assigned schools.

On this evening, students from the Newcomers School will share their stories—in poetry, prose, and art—and talk about their experiences in coming to America and adapting to a new culture.

Find out more about the Newcomers School here and here.

Immigration Stories, a joint project of Scuppernong Books and the Greensboro Bound Literary Festival, will explore the immigration and refugee experience in America through the lens of writing: fiction, non-fiction, and works for children. We’ll highlight the stories of the immigrant and refugee population as well as the issues, especially as they impact and affect the local community. Immigration Stories responds directly to these issues by providing the community with the opportunity to interact and engage in a series of public readings, panel discussions, and conversations with writers, scholars, and their neighbors. For more information, call 336-763-1919.

This project is made possible in part by funding from the North Carolina Humanities Council, a statewide non-profit and affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
