Orchard Gardens students' illustrations featured in new book

With help from students at the Orchard Gardens K-8 Pilot School, Richard Trombetta, a board member of Generations Incorporated, has published a new book to benefit the organization's intergenerational literacy programming. Siamese Sam and the Things He Will Eat, based on the adventures of Mr. Trombetta's cat Sam, is illustrated by 3rd and 5th grade students at Orchard Gardens. The book is available for purchase on-line. 100% of the proceeds will support Generations Incorporated, a 13 year-old non-profi t organization that unites youth and older adults in mentoring and learning situations to provide community support and to improve the literacy rate in Boston Public Schools.
