Newcomers, The: Finding Refuge, Friendship, and Hope in an American Classroom

Author: Helen Thorpe

Narrator: Kate Handford

Unabridged: 15 hr 9 min

Format: Digital Audiobook

Publisher: Dreamscape Media

Published: 11/14/2017

Genre: Biography & Autobiography - Cultural Heritage

Synopsis

Offering a nuanced and transformative take on immigration, multiculturalism, and America's role on the global stage, The Newcomers follows and reflects on the lives of twenty-two immigrant teenagers throughout the course of their 2015-2016 school year at Denver's South High School. Unfamiliar with American culture or the English language, the students range from the age of fourteen to nineteen and come from nations struggling with drought, famine, or war. Many come directly from refugee camps, and some arrive alone, having left or lost every other member of their family. Their stories are poignant and remarkable, and at the center of their combined story is Mr. Williams: the dedicated and endlessly resourceful teacher of their English Language Acquisition class-a class which was created specifically for them and which will provide them with the foundation they need to face the enormous challenges of adapting to life in America.
