826 Boston, together with the Hutchins Center for African & African American Research and Mass Humanities, presented New York Times bestselling author Julie Lythcott-Haims at Harvard Book Store on January 26. Lythcott-Haims presented a reading from her book Real American: A Memoir, in which she recollects growing up a biracial black woman in America.

826 Boston student Tiffany, an eighth-grade student at the Boston Teachers Union School, gave a moving opening reading of her original poem “Empty Home,” a personal piece about growing up in a single-parent household.

We are grateful to Harvard Book Store and Julie Lythcott-Haims for presenting this opportunity to showcase student work and give students a platform to speak and be heard in the wider community.
