Teaching Hope: Stories from the Freedom Writing Teachers and Erin Gruwell (Broadway)

Tuesday, October 13 at 7:30pm


A READING & PUBLIC DISCUSSION ON OUR HOPES FOR THE FUTURE OF EDUCATION

Now depicted in a bestselling book and a feature film, the Freedom Writers phenomenon began when Erin Gruwell taught in a classroom where she faced the hopelessness of a community scarred by racial tensions and poverty. Undaunted, she fostered an educational philosophy that promoted diversity, tolerance, and communication. She continues to replicate her success in classrooms around the nation. Teaching Hope shares the stories of Freedom Writer teachers who provide insight into the struggles and triumphs of education in all of its forms.

A teacher in the Pajaro Valley Unified School District, Jennifer Laskin has worked with Erin Gruwell on the development of The Freedom Writers Teacher Institute, co-authored The Freedom Writers Diary Teachers Guide and is a contributor to Teaching Hope. This event is open to all teachers, educators and people who care about the current state of public education. This will be a book reading, signing and public discussion meant to listen to and share stories while building our hope for the future of education.

Tonight, purchase all three featured titles (Teaching Hope, The Freedom Writers Diary & The Teachers Guide) and receive a discount of 20%.

Every day, local registered teachers receive a 20% discount on any books purchased for classroom use
