Special Storytime with Lesléa Newman

March 2, 2019
2:00pm
Free with Museum Admission

Gittel and her mother were supposed to immigrate to America together, but when her mother is stopped by the health inspector, Gittel must make the journey alone. How will she find her family? Both a heart-wrenching and heartwarming story, Gittel’s Journey offers a fresh perspective on the immigration journey to Ellis Island. The book includes an author’s note explaining how Gittel’s story is based on the journey to America taken by Lesléa Newman’s grandmother and family friend.

Laurie Millman, Executive Director of The Center For New Americans will also be in attendance to talk about the Center's incredible work in supporting immigrants in Western Mass.
