Virtual Art Exhibit

The Jeanette Sarkisian Wagner

Teen Writing 2020 Collection

This spring ended the eleventh year of these weekly classes dedicated to connecting teens and words. The workshops, underwritten by the friends and family of Jeanette Sarkisian Wagner in honor of her lifelong commitment to youth literacy, are always inspiring. This year, despite the library briefly closing due to COVID-19, the teen writing continued with weekly Zoom meetings. Our students, stewards of our future world, continued to talk and write and edit— and create! Please enjoy this digital exhibit of their work, live online until August 31, 2020.

— Catherine Creedon, Director
