The following is a clip from the Colorado Academy monthly newsletter. Four students from the school were selected to attend the 2015 Neustadt Festival of International Literature and Culture.
Says Head of School Dr. Mike Davis, “I was lucky enough to sit in on a class as the ninth and fourth-grade students worked together to explore Asare’s work. The thoughtfulness and beauty of this award is that it honors writers who may not yet be well known, and at the same time elevates the work of contemporary writers and their voices. We’re lucky at CA to have this connection within our community.”
