About this Grantee

Ms. Simmons and Ms. Richardson guide their students through all the phases of writing and publishing novels that focus on growing up in Alabama from the 1940s through the 1970s. Students research these decades and conduct interviews with community members who were teenagers at the time. The students then write four novels, one for each decade, and host a book signing in a local bookstore.
