Printers Row Lit Fest 2016 Recap

June 14th—

We couldn’t be prouder of the student-authors of Brentano Math & Science Academy that made our audience laugh, cry, and gasp "OMG!" this past weekend at Printers Row Lit Fest. Students brought their stories to life with loud and expressive voices, friends and family went wild with applause and cheers. Books were signed, pictures were taken, and our student authors generally agreed that being famous is tough (but rewarding) work!

Big thanks to everyone who made “The Monster Gasped, ‘OMG!’” possible AND to everyone who visited our table at #PRLF2016!
