Lois Lowry illustrates the true meaning of friendship and courage throughout this riveting story by drawing readers in with suspense and imagery. Number the Stars tells the story about the friendship of ten-year-olds Annemarie Johansen and Ellen Rosen. The story is set in Copenhagen, Denmark, in 1943, where daily life has changed since the German occupation began three years before. The war and the occupation have brought food shortages, evening curfews, and German soldiers in the streets. Then a more ominous change threatens, as the Germans prepare to “relocate” the Jewish Danes, and the two friends are called upon to show strength, courage, and pride despite their fear, against a backdrop of war.

COLLEGE OF WILLIAM & MARY

The Center for Gifted Education (CFGE) is a research and development center providing services to educators, policy makers, graduate students, researchers, and parents in support of the needs of gifted and talented individuals.

Located in Williamsburg, Virginia, the CFGE has established an international reputation for excellence in research, curriculum development, and service. Several major grants, including funding from the Jacob K. Javits Gifted and Talented Students Education Act, have provided significant support for the work of the Center. In 2012, the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation awarded CFGE the funds needed for a summer residential camp for low income, high-ability children, for four consecutive years. In 2015, William & Mary alumni, Mike and Nancy Petters, through the Petters Family Foundation, provided additional financial support to the program. In 2016, the Petters Family Foundation has committed to  fully fund the program for the next four years. Camp Launch is only the beginning of the Center for Gifted Education’s goal to bring educational equality to all gifted students.
