Leading Book Discussions on the Navajo Nation
Amherst College students serving as reading mentors in Reader to Reader’s Navajo Mentoring Program led book discussions at St. Michael Indian School in St. Michaels, Arizona.
With the guidance of Reader to Reader's Navajo Outreach Coordinator, Ophelia Hu, mentors and students discussed Elie Wiesel’s holocaust novel Night.
Reader to Reader staff and the four college students are spending nine days touring the Navajo and Hopi reservations where they are visiting schools that receive book donations and literacy programs from Reader to Reader.
Reader to Reader’s Navajo Outreach Coordinator is funded through the generous support of the Fordham Street Foundation, the Hiatt Family Foundation, and Jean and Lynn Miller.
