“There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.”  ~Maya Angelou

Authors are precious but one who gives voice to minorities is priceless.  It was an honor today to host children’s book author Hena Khan at Peace Terrace.  You can learn more about here and her books here.

She had three session at the school.

Here she reads some of her books to the students and has them ask questions about the writing process.  Our favorite question was, “are the publishers bossy?”

……and she brought someone familiar with her……

The students had a blast with Curious George!

Hena also met with Jr. High students and talked about finding our voice as muslims and the importance of writing our own stories.

 

Thank you so much Hena for visiting Peace Terrace.  It was lovely to have you here to inspire our students.  Thank you Munir Safi of MCC for the introductions.
