Words on the Page: Literacy Chicago Students Writings
Since 1992, Words on the Page has celebrated adults actively pursuing higher levels of literacy. Literacy Chicago’s Words on the Page is an annual event where adult learners read their own writing at a celebration with their friends, family and fellow students. By doing so, they demonstrate their educational achievements and more importantly, take pride in their courageous efforts to openly address problems with literacy in their individual lives and the wider community. Literacy Chicago publishes a book of compilation of the essays written by current adult learners, and it stands as a testament to their hard work and to the need for literacy services in Chicago.
For 2018, students were asked to write an essay with the theme of Childhood Memories. The pages are filled with stories of gratitude, pride, sadness and, most importantly, hope. In this book you will witness the magic of learning and the impact it can have on the lives of diverse individuals.
This book can be found on Amazon for only $9.99. Click here to purchase your own copy!
