The Living School

The Living School, Tal’s second book about teaching and learning in the North Branch School, will be published in Spring of 2020 by Green Writers Press.

Green Writers Press is a Vermont-based, global publisher founded by writer and environmental activist, Dede Cummings. It is the mission of Green Writers Press to spread a message of hope and renewal through the words and images we publish.

The Living School sketches an utterly unique entity: an independent and virtual one-room middle school in the Green Mountains of Vermont. The Living School takes a deep look into an intimate, wild, and unpredictable year of learning, in and out of the classroom, with a diverse collection of funny, profound, troubled, and hopeful adolescents.
