With Marshall campus closing, this was the last Renaissance Arts and Linus Pauling reading. Instead of melancholia, however, there was a strong sense of community and support amidst the students, families, teachers, administrators, and WITS writers. Several of the works celebrated the author’s determination and desire to find a place in the world. Lents Commons provided a great space for the reading, with pastries, coffee, and a sunny corner location. We want to thank all the students who participated, and look forward to working with them at Franklin and Madison High Schools next year!
