Uncharted Places

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. In 2014 we returned to Thurgood Marshall Academic High School after our last Young Author’s Book Project with them ten years ago. These students shared stories of places physical, transitory, imaginary, and emotional. With a foreword by Rabih Alameddine.
