​On Monday, March 11, the RCHS Library will be hosting best-selling author Ruta Sepetys via Zoom. In her first year as RCHS Librarian, Mrs. Julian has collaborated with both the History and English Departments to bring Sepetys' works into the classroom. English classes, as well as the teacher book club, chose to study Sepetys' most recent historical fiction piece, ​I Must Betray You​. This book has won both teachers and students over and has been well received. The History Department's Western Civilization class will be studying her work ​Salt to the Sea​. The RCHS Library would like to thank ERFAE for their generous donation to help bring Ruta Sepetys to the students. The library has copies of all her works available for student checkout also.
