"It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it."— Aristotle

Attention GHS Community:

We have some very exciting news to share. We are promoting and hosting a big book discussion event in conjunction with Mayor Jud Ashman and the Gaithersburg Book Festival on March 31st in the PAC. The book is ‘American Dirt’ by GHS graduate Jeanine Cummins (see the link below for more detailed information):  

Also, the book was just picked yesterday for Oprah’s Book Club!

And the Washington Post wrote an interesting article as well.
