What the Students Have to Say...
Laura S., New Jersey
"I loved the whole thing. The games at the beginning of the week were fun and I loved discussing the poems. I really liked the Friday night performance. I enjoyed discussing the books and hanging out with people who loved reading. I also enjoyed the movies, they were very unique."
Nick E., New York
"This has been the best week of my life. Really. For the first time EVER I was able to do my favorite things in my life with like-minded people my age. I learned so much about literature, but more importantly, I learned a lot about myself. Thanks to everyone who had any part in putting this together. DO NOT stop what you are doing, please. You are changing the lives of young people every day. Once again, best week of my life. I can't thank you enough."

Elizabeth C., Massachusetts
"Fun, fun, fun all the time. It was never not fun. I learned so much!"

"Sherman was great. He gave us just enough of a push to get things out of us about the readings. Because of this, I was able to see things that I might have missed if I read it by myself. The others were great during group discussions."
