What's Your Favorite Book? Susan Sarosky

Posted by WVIA Admin on

One of my favorite stories is A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith. This story is an inspirational and moving story about Frances Nolan and her poor family in the early 1900's in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn and I like the dreams and values that her family had of owning a home, saving money for that cause, education for the children, having a career that uses your talents. All those things are dreams that we still have in America, so I think it's a great American story. That's why I would vote for that for the Great American Read.
