Come join us to celebrate an amazing accomplishment!
These 2012 Young Urban Authors participated in the SYVPI Central Area Network partnership pairing the Community Matching Mini Grant and the YMCA employment programs. We are so excited about the accomplishments of these teenagers from the Central Area Network who will become fully-published authors. From reading the previews, these books will touch your heart, make you laugh, make you think and so much more. These youth have compelling stories to share. They will be on hand to read excerpts from their written work and sign copies of their books. Don’t miss out!
