Museum of Diamonds is a captivating collection of poems and stories from students in the After-School Tutoring Program at 826LA in Echo Park. Throughout the Fall, students discussed, brainstormed, and wrote about their Adventure-ships–adventures with their friends. In the first part of the book you will find some heart felt poetry inspired by loved ones that explore the meaning of friendship. The second part of this book chronicles the action-packed adventures of our superhero students and their sidekick besties. Finally, you’re in for a cryptic treat. Our students penned suspenseful, bone-chilling, and hillarious thrillers inspired by the Legend of “La Llorona.” Hold onto your seats, you’re in for a wild ride.
