Please join us for a great evening of discussion and learning at Barrington Middle School when we discuss the book, The War That Saved My Life by Kimberly Brubaker Bradley. The War That Saved My Life is historical fiction set in England during World War II in the time of the Dunkirk evacuations—or what Winston Churchill called England’s “finest hour,” when 330,000 British soldiers were saved—and during the aerial bombings of the Battle of Britain. As the soldiers and civilians of England bravely fight for freedom in this novel, the main character, Ada, fights her own battle for freedom. Students will grapple with the themes of self-discovery, acceptance, and family. Even if you have already read this book, we highly encourage you and your family to join us as you will be able to meet the book requirements outlined by your cluster teachers. We kindly ask you to reserve a ticket for each member of your family. We look forward to you joining us!
