Lorraine Hansberry Visits Book Week

On November 5, 1959, Lorraine Hansberry visited students to talk about her writing, including the play A Raisin in the Sun, as part of Book Week.

LREI prides itself on shrinking the distance between the schoolhouse and the “real world.” We do this in a variety of ways, using a variety of tools. Among our greatest tools in this pursuit are books. A well crafted book allows the reader to experience a life they may never lead. In bridging this gap, we are able to reflect on our own lives and exercise our humanity.
