More than 30 students, staff, and community members gathered on March 25 for Westfield High School’s No Place for Hate community book-read discussion. The participants met via video chat to talk about Kekla Magoon’s novel. How It Went Down, which tells the story of a community responding to the shooting of an African-American teenager by a white man. The discussion addressed themes such as identity, perspective, and stereotypes, as well as the ways in which this book from 2014 remains relevant today.

As part of a Historical Fiction unit, 5th graders in Westfield Public Schools read "Number the Stars" by Lois Lowry, a historical fiction novel that follows a friendship between a Jewish girl and a Christian girl in Copenhagen and their journey to freedom during World War II. Recent virtual presentations on the Holocaust provided students with important real-life context to these classroom experiences.
