One Book One Community: Wonder by R.J. Palacio

As part of the district's centennial celebrations, all RRISD libraries are supporting One Book, One Community - for which the entire district is reading Wonder by R.J. Palacio. Your library received copies of the book to promote its reading by interested Dragons. 

In fact, Assistant Dance Director, Tiffanie Harrison sent the following word of thanks to express the powerful impact of this novel:

"Just wanted to say thank you for introducing 
[the Dragonettes] to Wonder!

Our team has recently been working to realize both the positive and negative weight that our words can carry and I feel that Wonder could not have come to us at a more 
perfect time.

We started our read aloud today with a PJ Party and will continue to read as a team over the next few weeks. 
The book has already sparked some great discussion...."


One Book, One Community will culminate in an author visit on February 10th - at which time, students from across this district will have the opportunity to hear Ms. Palacio speak.
