Each of the 38 students in the program have been creating their own book this year, with help from African Nova Scotian Literacy Support Worker Kate Goodwin. As part of the book-writing project, students learned about the publishing business and the book-printing process through a visit to Gaspereau Press in Kentville, followed by a "book release" party on May 28.
