This is the third media hit we’ve garnered for this project; a huge example of press begetting more press! Each time the Press Democrat wrote about this, they were interested in even more, so we’ve kept them in the loop and they’ve been reporting about the project at each stage for us.
SRJC ESL students were inspired by Malala – they wrote personal letters to her about their own experiences relating to her struggle, and then combined them into a self-published book. The results were incredible. This most recent piece ran on the cover of the Press Democrat’s Sonoma Section and features interviews with the students, plus a live video interview shot by the PD of some the student writers. Book project events culminated with a reading at local bookstore Copperfield’s this week and the article drew a huge crowd to the event.
