Green Card Youth Voices: Immigration Stories from a St. Paul High School

  • SubText Books 6 West 5th Street Saint Paul, MN, 55102 United States (map)

Join us in the store on Thursday, September 21st at 7:00 PM to hear students read from Green Card Youth Voices: Immigration Stories from a St. Paul High School. They will share their stories and take questions. 

On Jan. 12, 2017 Green Card Voices met with 30 immigrant students, and soon-to-be-authors, from LEAP High School in St. Paul. Through a presentation with former Wellstone student (and author in the Minneapolis book), Zaynab Abdi, the students asked questions and calmed their nerves in preparation for the recording later in January. The students have been preparing to record their narratives for the past semester under the guidance of EL teacher Dr. Amy Hewett-Olatunde. Green Card Voices, in collaboration with Hamline University graduate students, will work with these English Learner (EL) students, who come from thirteen different countries, to create individual online video narratives and written personal essays that can be found in the book.
