Each year, 826 Valencia partners with a local high school. With the help of one-on-one tutor support, the students write essays centered around a given theme. For our ninth edition of the Young Authors’ Book Project, we worked with juniors and seniors at June Jordan School for Equity as they explored the role of myth in our world today. With a foreword by Khaled Hosseini.
