This writing workshop needs your help at a middle school in Mott Haven. To sign up, contact volunteer@behindthebook.org with the program code.

Program 2237TM-R

Date/Time:Wednesday, July 24th / 10:30 AM – 12:30 PM

About the program: Seventh-graders read “Tight” by Torrey Maldonado, about a boy who must navigate through difficult choices compelled by family dynamics, friendships, and his desire for a different life. Students will work with coaches to edit their personal narratives about a time in their own lives when they had to make tough decisions.

We provide advance information on your role, and hold a brief orientation at the school right before the workshop begins. Groups welcome!
