Our English Language Learner Summer Book Club wanted to express our gratitude for including us in the *** event; the free tickets allowed our members to attend. We were inspired by the event, particularly listening to a fellow young person who has travelled a similar path. The event and books sparked many conversations around their war experiences and personal journeys to Canada from making it out on foot to a safer country to slipping out of the country in the trunk of a car. We were so thankful to be welcomed into the LLF community and that “Canadians clapped for us!” when we participated in the discussion. Thank you again, Ellen Hinan
