In the Year of the Boar and Jackie Robinson presented by Midwest Trust Center at Johnson County Community College at Midwest Trust Center at Johnson County Community College, Overland Park KS

In the Year of the Boar and Jackie Robinson | Thursday, November 10 at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. | Yardley Hall | Celebrate the bravery and sacrifice of those who bring new perspectives to our country with this adaptation of Bette Bao Lord’s book.

In 1947, the Year of the Boar, a young girl leaves China with her parents for a new beginning in America. But it’s harder than she expected.
Though her classmates in Brooklyn come from a variety of backgrounds, Shirley is the only one who doesn’t speak English, and she worries she will never have a friend. Through a new love of the Brooklyn Dodgers (especially her hero, Jackie Robinson), Shirley begins to feel at home.
