Timeline of Helen Thorpe


Thorpe also published three books. Just Like Us, which follows the lives of four Denver girls of Mexican ancestry and deals with aspects of immigration into the United States, was published by Scribner in 2009. It subsequently won the Colorado Book Award and was named one of the best books published that year by the Washington Post. Her second book, Soldier Girls, was published by Scribner in 2014. It describes the experiences of three women who enlisted in the Army National Guard before 9/11. The three women had anticipated only part-time military service but ultimately served deployments in both Iraq and Afghanistan. One was a single mother of three children. Soldier Girls was named the number one nonfiction book of that year by Time Magazine. Her third book, The Newcomers, follows 22 newly-arrived teenagers from nations racked by drought, famine, or war, recording their first year in America as they take a beginner-level English Language Acquisition class at South High School in Denver. Thorpe explores what it means to “be American” while learning these refugee students’ stories, presenting her perspective on the issues of immigration, multiculturalism, and America’s role on the global stage. The Newcomers was named a finalist for the J. Anthony Lukas Work-in-Progress Award.
