Refugee, a novel by Alan Gratz featuring interwoven accounts of flight from three separate conflicts, on three continents, in three historical periods, is the 2019 Saratoga READS! Junior Companion selection. The poignant and page-turning stories of Josef, a Jewish boy departing 1930s Nazi Germany; Isabel, fleeing from Cuba in 1994; and Mahmoud, evacuating Syria in 2015, shine a child’s-eye view on the plight of those fleeing oppression and seeking safety and opportunity in a new land.

A full schedule of events will be posted on the library library’s website, www.sspl.org and at www.saratogareads.org.
