Stephen Haff presents Kid Quixotes: A Group of Students, Their Teacher, and the One-Room School Where Everything Is Possible

In conversation with DW Gibson

Founder of Still Waters in a Storm Stephen Haff shares his new book Kid Quixotes, the unlikely, inspiring true story of a one-room school where children of undocumented immigrants and their teacher discover their voices and speak truth to power. Still Waters in a Storm is an after-school program serving Spanish-speaking immigrant children in Brooklyn. Since 2016, the students have been collectively translating Don Quixote into English, taking the Spanish tale—a story about a dreamer who never gives up—and adapting it into a bilingual musical. As the kids perform their work across NYC, they learn that they belong in this country—their voices amplifying to deliver a message of diversity, love, hope, and resilience essential to us all. DW Gibson, award-winning author of 14 Miles: Building the Border Wall and The Edge Becomes the Center among other titles, joins Haff in conversation for this virtual book talk.
