Alumni Book Day Chat – March 11, 2019
Upper Division Book Day – when classes are suspended for an entire day so that students, faculty, and administrators can examine and discuss one book they have all read – is now in its 24th year. The 2019 Book Day selection, Daily Show host Trevor Noah’s Born a Crime, is described by The New York Times as “a harrowing look, through the prism of Mr. Noah’s family, at life in South Africa under apartheid and the country’s lurching entry into a post-apartheid era in the 1990’s.” On March 11th, HM alumni from across the generations, select HM faculty, and a panel of experts will come together over a light meal for an in-depth discussion of the themes and issues raised by Mr. Noah’s memoir – among them apartheid, colonialism, racism, identity, and faith. E-invitations will be emailed to all NYC-area alumni via Paperless Post. For more information, please contact Kristin Lax, Director of Alumni Relations, at Kristin_lax@horacemann.org.

Sunset Sponsors Soirée – June 13, 2019
Supporters who sponsor the 16th Annual Alumni Council Benefit at the $1,500, $2,500, $5,000, or $10,000 levels will receive a special invitation to a private “Sponsors Soirée.” This festive cocktail reception, scheduled for June 13, 2019, is hosted by an HM alumni family on the rooftop of their Upper East Side townhouse. The event celebrates and honors our growing list of Alumni Benefit sponsors. These sponsorships are critical to the Alumni Council’s ability to fully fund the Student Lunch Initiative and lend assistance to our Middle Division and Upper Division students who receive financial aid.
