As you consider loved ones on your holiday shopping list, don’t forget that the gift of stories is one of the best you can give –– and the best place to find stories is your local bookstore.

Inspiring essays, short stories, and poems from our students (and other great writers) await you at the Wicker Park Secret Agent Supply Co. Do you know your neighborhood’s bookseller?

Our loudest thanks to all who joined us for the release of "Ears as Big as my Head," our tutoring students' year-in-the-making oral history project. Our writing lab was packed with families, students, volunteers, and community members, all sharing food and stories. We're especially grateful for an inspiring introduction from the Producer Gabe Ramirez of The J Show on B96 and the kind editorial work of Lisa Matsuka, Michael San Gabino, Anne Ford, and Melanie Kruvelis. Thank you all for showing up in support of our students and their voices!
