Gift of Literature Book Drive

This holiday season, help Samantha give the gift of classic books to her students!

Samantha Glass, Hudson School alum, is in an Education Master's program at Rutgers. She's student teaching this fall at a local middle school. As a farewell to her 8th-graders — many low-income and first-generation immigrants — she hopes to give each student two books to keep. She needs 70 copies each of The Diary of a Young Girl: Anne Frank and The House on Mango Street by Sandra Cisneros. 

Please buy a book, or two! or three! for Samantha's students. She knows they will be forever grateful for the gift of classic literature.

If you have any questions, please contact Samantha Glass at, or info@littlecitybooks.

Please pay online, and select "pick up at store" at check out — books will be delivered to the school.

Note for The Hudson School community: From December 2nd - 10th, 20% of all purchases (including these!) will be donated to The Hudson School scholarship fund. Just mention Hudson at checkout.
