PROJECT LIT MEETS YOUNG ADULT NOVELIST ONLINE
Students in Link’s Project Lit Book Club meet Jessica Kim, author of Stand Up, Yumi Chung, a novel about a young Asian American girl trying to find her way in life, that the book club has been reading this month. Ms. Kim, an elementary school teacher turned author, shared her journey as a writer, including how she started, the importance of finding a “writing community” for feedback and encouragement, and her successes and failures. Students really enjoyed the book and asked Mrs. Kim many questions about it. Thank you Mrs. Kim for sharing so wonderfully with our young scholars!
