LARC Celebrates Local Teen Authors and Artists

On Thursday, May 10th, the LARC Teen Division hosted the 2018 Book Launch Party for the third edition of Scrawl: Rockland Teens Write.  104 people attended the event at which each published teen was presented with a copy of the book.  Guest editors JG Faherty and Carolyn MacCullough were in attendance and signed books for the teens and their families.

The Scrawl project began in 2015 and led to the 2016 publication of the first edition.  This year's Committee, chaired by Jessica Gordon, included Emily Dowie, Joanna Goldfarb, Ruth Vandervanter, and Kristie Revicki.
