Aquinas Honor Society students at the Immaculate Conception School of Jamaica took part in a book signing for their newest publication “Images of America: Kew Gardens” at Barnes and Noble in Fresh Meadows on Sunday.

The signing was attended by Councilman Rory Lancman (D-Fresh Meadows), who presented them with a proclamation in recognition for their work and Immaculate Conception Pastor William Murphy.

Students read portions of the book, which took about two years to research and write, to those attending the signing.

The book is the third in a trilogy, as the honor society previously penned books about Jamaica and Richmond Hill.

“Images of America: Kew Gardens” contains over 200 rare and vintage photographs, including some that have never been seen by the public before.

Architectural historian Barry Lewis and Kew Gardens historian Joe De May aided the students in their research for the book.

Welcome to the discussion.
