The 2019-20 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 are receiving a copy (one per family) of Dear Evan Hansen, by Val Emmich with Steven Levenson, Benj Pasek & Justin Paul. Dear Evan Hansen, by the creators of the Broadway musical of the same name, is a story about a social awkward, anxiety-ridden teen.
When a letter that was never meant to be seen draws him into a family's grief over the loss of their son, he has to stick to a lie he never meant to tell--that the notoriously troubled Connor Murphy was his secret best friend.
Special events will be held around the year at Amity built around the themes in the book.
