About 150 6th-grade girls had the chance to Skype with Amy Goldman Kass, author of The Girls. The students interacted with the author and asked questions about her writing. In turn, Kass asked some of the students questions. EIS librarian Lucy Drenka organized the event centered around World Read Aloud Day. Drenka provided each of the girls a copy of the book, which they brought with them to the café.
