It's Here! The 2019-20 One Book is Dear Evan Hansen
Dear Evan Hansen, by Val Emmich with Steven Levenson, Benj Pasek & Justin Paul, is a story about Evan Hansen, a social awkward, anxiety-ridden teen. When a letter that was never meant to be seen by anyone draws him into a family's grief over the loss of their son. He just has to stick to a lie he never meant to tell, that the notoriously troubled Connor Murphy was his secret best friend.
The One Book, One Amity program is an all-out, community-wide effort to create a shared experience and promote literacy.
All staff, faculty, and students in grades 9-12 will receive a free copy of the book chosen, (one per family).
