Junot Díaz Visits Longwood

Reported by donna_kouri@ipsd.org on 4/6/18

Author Junot Díaz visited Longwood on Monday, April 2 and spoke to all students. Díaz is a New York Times best selling author and a Pulitzer Prize winner. He came to Longwood to talk about his new picture book Islandborn. We loved listening to Mr. Díaz talked about his experience moving to the United States and talking about his new book. We learned that even if we do not remember where we are from it is still a part of us, just like in the book when the main character had difficulty remembering the island where she was born. We are so grateful Mr. Díaz came to our school.
