You Never Forget How to Ride a Bike: Lessons Learned by the Students of John Marshall High School (826LA)
826LA is releasing its newest book, You Never Forget How to Ride a Bike: Lessons Learned by the Students of John Marshall High School. The young authors lead us through the moments that have shaped their lives— among them encounters with Def Leppard albums, wormy peaches, campus police, and Mara Salvatrucha—and share with us the things they've learned about the kindness of strangers, letting go of love, resolve in the presence of naysayers, and the value of a dollar.
826LA is a writing and tutoring nonprofit, with centers in Echo Park and Venice, that provides after-school tutoring, evening and weekend workshops, in-school tutoring, help for English language learners, and assistance with student publications.
THIS EVENT WAS RECORDED LIVE AT SKYLIGHT BOOKS JUNE 23, 2010.
