On Wednesday, January 22nd, from 7 to 8 pm, local author and writing instructor Joanna Rose leads a team of students and teachers from Grant High School reading from their own work on what organizers call a high-energy night. The event is designed to highlight the talent and passion of local young authors.
Literary Arts’ Youth Programs reinforce the real-world importance of reading and writing. They work with high-school-age students in schools and organizations throughout Portland, East Multnomah County, and Oregon. Their programs inspire students to find their voices and allow youth to be a part of the broader literary community. In particular, the Writers in the Schools program offers semester-long writing workshops in high school classrooms.
This event is open to the public. Broadway Books is located at 1714 NE Broadway. For more information visit www.broadwaybooks.net.
