Jerry Craft - New Kid

Upcoming Event
Thursday, February 7, 2019 - 10:30am

Jordan, a comics-loving seventh grader, wants nothing more than to go to the arts middle school of his dreams. But his parents have other plans in mind. They send him to a prestigious and rigorous private school where he is one of the few students of color in his class. Every day, as he makes the long journey from his neighborhood to Riverdale Academy Day School, he finds himself increasingly torn between two worlds, and struggling to fit into either. In this graphic novel, Craft utilizes humor to tell a story full of heart, and illuminates the struggle of growing up and trying to figure out who you are. Ages 9-13.

This event is free to attend and open to the public, however, reservations are required for school groups interested in attending. Seating is available on a first come, first served basis.
