New Literacy Review!

Last night we celebrated the release of the Literacy Review, Volume 17 at NYU. The Literacy Review is an annual collection of writing by adult education students throughout New York City, and it is produced and published by the NYU Gallatin Writing Program, under the leadership of Professor June Foley. Advanced Writing Class student Marilia Valengo, along with many other adult literacy students across NYC, read before a crowd of over 200 people.

In the video below you will see writers included in this year Literacy Review talk about their writing – watch for Advanced Writing Class student Murielle Mobengo at the 1:05 mark:
