A group of young writers based at Garner Magnet High School recently published their first book. It explores their personal narrative through the genres of poetry, essays, letters, memoirs, and more. More importantly, their work explores their experiences as first generation and immigrant students in our community. Books will be available for purchase at the event! All proceeds from the purchase of this book goes into a scholarship fund. Because the sales are handled by the kids so they get all the profits, cash is much appreciated.
