Young Writer

A Westchester Academy for International Studies student is among 43 local authors who will be honored Saturday, Dec. 1, when a nonprofit literacy group unveils its third anthology of short stories all written by Houston-area students.

Amaris Bobbio-Tarco of Westchester Academy is among students published in the new anthology titled “I Write: Short Stories by Kids for Kids Collection.” A book publication party is planned beginning at 2 p.m. Saturday downtown at the Houston Public Library, 500 McKinney Street.

The special literacy and book signing event will honor students in grades three through 12 for the works that they contributed. The book event is sponsored by Read3Zero, founded by children’s author Melissa Williams.
