Memorial students participated in an interactive Global Read for the book, Inside Out and Back Again with author, Thanhha Lai. They got to meet the author and present their questions in a live web format. Ms. Lai is a first time author who has received many accolades, such as, Newberry Award, National Book Award and the MCBA (Massachusetts Children's Book Award). Students from Ohio, Oregon, Texas, Maine, and Illinois joined in the discussion. Thank you to Mrs. Olshaw for organizing this event.
