Padma Venkatraman, author of Climbing the Stairs will speak at Connelly at 6:30 p.m. September 16. This FREE event is open to the public.
BRING A FRIEND.
Climbing the Stairs is a coming-of-age story about a young girl in
India, during World War II. She lives a progressive life in
Bombay, but circumstances thrust her family to
Madras to join her grandfather's traditional home, and she finds refuge in her grandfather's upstairs library.
The book is Connelly's featured novel in the
All-School Reading Program. Each year, our campus community reads one book together. Students read and discuss the book during class time and the program culminates with a visit from the author. Venkatraman plans to speak about her characters, particularly the true-life stories and people that inspire her work.
