On June 6, 2013 students from Literacy Volunteers of Essex/Franklin Counties and Literacy Volunteers of Clinton County had the opportunity to hear their own creative writing pieces read aloud by professional Broadway actors! It’s hard to put in words how moving and emotional the evening was, but here is a YouTube link for all of you to see. There are longer versions also available on YouTube. ENJOY!
