- Food Friends' Ferocious Fight for the Forest
Release party for Look Closer/Mira de Cerca
Please join us in the Writing Lab at 826 Valencia on the evening of Thursday, May 22, 2014, as we celebrate the publication of the latest issue of Look Closer/ Mira de Cerca. The bilingual chapbook, printed and bound on-site by 826 Valencia with the help of a generous and talented volunteer designer, is a compilation of pieces produced at The Writing Table by students enrolled in our After-School Tutoring program. Upon completing the day's school homework assignments, students visit The Writing Table and are engaged with contemplative writing exercises. With the support of Writing Table coordinators, students select their better pieces, then revise and edit their own work. Finally, these pieces are translated, published, and bound in-house. To celebrate the release of the book, the students will read their work for their family and friends, while we all enjoy milk and cookies. This is an open community event, and there will be copies of the book available.
