    Nearly 50 students, staff, parents and community members came together, Nov. 19th for Dr. Seinfeld's 11th Community Book Club! Participants enjoyed an evening of conversation and comradery after reading the book,  I am Malala: How One Girl Stood Up for Education and Changed the World.  Complementing the evening, participants watched an interview of Malala with Jon Stewart of The Daily Show and were given a website link featuring dozens of real-life stories about how Malala's courage inspired them to overcome adversity in their own lives.

    At Dr. Seinfeld's 12th Community Book Club, the book Posted by John David Anderson was discussed and participants were treated to a virtual visit from the author himself!
