Join us for a night of Q&A with author Jael Richardson moderated by Harper Collins Editor and JICS Parent, Jennifer Lambert.
The JICS Parents' Association has purchased five copies of Gutter Child for the school library. If a member of the community would like to attend but does not have the means to purchase a book/ticket, please contact Richard directly for a link to the event.

After you have purchased the book from Another Story, they will send you an email with the zoom link to the event with Jael Richardson. Chriss and Richard have both read the book already and said it is excellent. They hope to see you there!
