Students at Lawndale’s Lloyde High publish writing thanks to literacy project

 

Eleven students at Lloyde Continuation High School in Lawndale are officially published authors.

Sharifa Norris and the participants of Lloyde’s creative writing class elective have collaborated with the I AM Project for Literacy Program to produce “Spare Change Vol. II,” a collection of poems, short stories and narratives.

The authors penned nine pieces for the book, which was recognized Wednesday during their first book signing at Centinela Valley’s Center for Arts. They were joined by family, administrators and members of the local community, including Lawndale Mayor Robert Pullen-Miles.

Pullen-Miles said he was proud of the students, noting that literacy and creative writing is important to the growth and development of the community.
