One Book, One School



The OBOS program focuses on developing literacy but is also designed to build community and promote the character-building theme Stanley has adopted for that school year. The theme for the 2023-2024 school year is “Everyone Belongs” and Stanley is thrilled to share that the book we have chosen to read is You Are Here: Connecting Flights.

You are Here: Connecting Flights explores themes of identity and belonging in the entwined experiences of young people whose family roots may extend to East and Southeast Asia, but who are themselves distinctly American. The stories are written by Linda Sue Park, Erin Entrada Kelly, Grace Lin, Traci Chee, Mike Chen, Meredith Ireland, Mike Jung, Minh Lê, Ellen Oh, Randy Ribay, Christina Soontornvat, and Susan Tan, and Ellen Oh. Oh is also a founding member of We Need Diverse Books (WNDB), a non-profit organization dedicated to increasing diversity in children’s literature.
