Having students, teachers, and writers from Jefferson High School read their work at Talking Drum Bookstore/Reflections Coffeehouse lent the event a strong feeling of community. Several students’ work mentioned their experiences coming to America from other countries, and the mix of nostalgia, discovery, and adjustment that accompanies their new lives. Emotions were heightened as readers dedicated pieces to a friend, a brother, and a parent who had passed on. Overall, it was another fantastic reading. Many thanks to all those who participated!
