345 W. Kellogg Blvd.
St. Paul, MN 55102
Free, reservation recommended

Join the Minnesota Literacy Council in celebration of the 30th annual showcase of readings of original works by adult student writers, including refugees, immigrants, and native English speakers who represent the rich tapestry of Minnesota's communities.

An awards ceremony for student authors, staff, volunteers, and their guests will precede the readings at 6 pm. Readings kick off at 7:15 pm and will be followed by a complimentary buffet provided by Holy Land.

The writers are among the 65,000 Minnesota adults studying through the national Adult Basic Education (ABE) system. ABE students are working towards a high school credential, learning English, improving basic skills such as literacy and math, and/or preparing for post-secondary education or employment.

ABE is funded with both federal and state funds, and services are delivered through a network comprising all Minnesota school districts as well as other partners including the correctional system and community-based organizations, such as the Minnesota Literacy Council.
