College freshman and first-time author Noni Carter inspires Coretta Scott King YWLA students
Coretta Scott King Young Women’s Leadership Academy welcomed Noni Carter (pictured, above center), a metro Atlanta native, Harvard freshman and first-time published author of the novel Good Fortune. CSKYWLA’s Pen-Pal Club Project hosted the visit. In two morning sessions, Carter met with students who have scored in the 70% in ELA/Reading Comprehension. It is the school’s hope that by sharing her story, students are encouraged and inspired to continue to explore the world around them through literature, and to express their ideas and to tell their stories through writing.
Pen-Pal Club Project members, and the two top students who have shown the greatest improvement in ELA/Reading this year, received an autograph copy of Good Fortune. Hat tip to Zola Mullen for sharing the news!
