This Friday, the eighty-three student authors of The Enter Question: How to Ask and How to Answer, will celebrate the release of their 300-page anthology with 826 Valencia. The Enter Question is the product of 826 Valencia’s Young Authors’ Book Project, for which we partner with a different San Francisco high school each year.
For an entire semester, eleventh graders at San Francisco International High School worked with 826 Valencia tutors as they wrote, revised, and shaped a collection from their essays. On Friday, they will hold them in their hands in book form for the very first time.
SFIHS is a high school specially designed for students who have recently immigrated to the United States, and the essays in The Enter Question cover a wide variety of topics including the challenges of communicating in a new language, the courage it takes to ask for help, and the joy in meeting new people from all over the world.
You will be able to pick up a copy of The Enter Question in the Pirate Supply Store after the release of the book on Friday, and they’ll be available online soon afterward!
