Thanks to Miss Zumstein’s Bakery & Coffee Shop, there were delicious baked goods and teas to accompany the powerful student work shared at the WITS Reading for Meek Pro-Tech High School. Students in Amy Taramasso and Tom Kane’s class worked with WITS writer Laura Moulton on poems and prose, which they shared with an audience of peers, teachers, and Principal Lorna Fast Buffalo Horse.
Students shared work with an emotional heft, whether it was about having their mother deported or having to grow up too fast to take care of siblings. There were also more lighthearted moments, including first chapters of novels and poetry about the cookies and muffins at the bakeshop. Everyone received a hearty applause, and everyone will certainly be returning to Miss Zumstein’s. Thanks to all who helped make this such a great reading!
