Fort Greene Young Readers Book Group discusses Return to Sender
Led by Greenlight receiving manager Grace, our young readers book group in Fort Greene is geared toward kids ages 9 to 12, and reads great contemporary and classic chapter books. Parents are welcome (but not required) to attend, and pizza is served. For April, the group reads and discusses Return to Sender by Julia Alvarez. After his family hires migrant Mexican workers to help save their Vermont farm from foreclosure, eleven-year-old Tyler befriends the oldest daughter, but when he discovers they may not be in the country legally, he realizes that real friendship knows no borders. Return to Sender is an award-winning, moving, and timely story about the families of undocumented workers by renowned author Julia Alvarez.
