WITS Reading for Grant HS at Broadway Books

Broadway Books was, as always, a lovely venue for Grant High School students to share work they created during Writers in the Schools (WITS) residencies this semester. Students in Scott Blevins and Courtney Palmer’s classes worked with WITS writers-in-residence Jules Ohman and Claudia Savage, both of whom came and shared their own work alongside students. Mr. Blevins also shared a piece he had written during the residency. Topics varied widely, but parents featured in many (good, bad, and absent). A story about being a “bad Russian” elicited a lot of laughs from the audience, who was warm and attentive to every student performance. We want to thank everyone who came and participated, by reading or by listening, and we’re looking forward to sharing Grant student work in the WITS anthology!
