This spring, being a power for good as a Masters School community member starts here. And you’re all invited.

In celebration of Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month in May, “Good Talk: A Community Conversation with Mira Jacob,” takes center stage in a special online event hosted by the New York State Association of Independent Schools (NYSAIS). Open to all Masters School community members, the conversation takes place via Zoom on Tuesday, May 10, at 4:00 p.m. You must register here to participate in this free event.

A Q & A session will follow the discussion.

The New York Times Book Review describes “Good Talk: A Memoir in Conversations” as one of the best books of the year. It is a unique and captivating graphic memoir about American identity and interracial families by author, illustrator and cultural critic Mira Jacob.
