An Ellis Island Christmas with Maxinne Leighton

An Ellis Island Christmas with Maxinne Leighton

Ninety lucky students from the Cornelia F. Bradford School - P.S. 16 in Jersey City, NJ., were chosen to participate in a special holiday program hosted by Save Ellis Island with special guest and author of An Ellis Island Christmas, Maxinne Leighton.

For this holiday event students and faculty will enjoy hot chocolate, cookies, free transportation to Ellis Island and a special individually autographed book. For the last several years, Ms. Leighton has visited the south side of Ellis Island in December for a book reading and signing. This year it will be a special treat for PS16 when SEI educators assist the students with an art project that will be exhibited in the historic hospital staff house. The artwork will remain on display until the end of the holiday season.
