The Law Offices of Joe Bornstein is honored to support and contribute to the Portland Public Library and the I'm Your Neighbor Portland Program.
I'm Your Neighbor, Portland is a city-wide reading initiative featuring a nine-book set. The books in this series celebrate the increasing diverse immigrant and multicultural population in Greater Portland.
As part of this program, on August 8, 2013, 160 young readers will attend an event that celebrates one of the nine books, A Path of Stars, written and illustrated by Anne Sibley O'Brien. During the event, O'Brien and the book's cultural consultants, Veasna and Peng Kem, will present the story with families in addition to hosting events and sharing Cambodian food.
A Path of Stars, a children's picture book that has been honored by the Asian American Pacific Association, tells the story of a Cambodian American girl who tries to bring her grandmother peace and happiness in the midst of an upsetting family situation.
Our beautiful city of Portland, Maine continues to evolve into one of multiracial and mutlicultural diversity. We are proud to celebrate Portland's growing immigrant population and the I'm Your Neighbor, Portland program.
