It is never too late to stand up for yourself. It is never too late to turn your life around. It is never too late to appreciate those around you. In this Chapbook, the students of Tuesday and Thursday Night Tutoring at 826LA in Mar Vista explored the genre of creative nonfiction. The result was a book that captures their life in the present moment, their beloved roots, and where they hope to be tomorrow. Here you'll find powerful and sincere poem, anecdotes, and essays that critically engage with topics such as the prison system, standards of beauty bullying, and what it means to be American. Read their hopeful words and join us in saying, "it is never too late."
About the cover: In breaking an hourglass to stop time and think for a little while, we open our minds to all of the topics mentioned above.
