SIT Fall 2016 students Jonah Edwards (left) and John McClaughlin (below) presented their books at El Poncho — Cochabamba, Bolivia for an audience of SIT students, faculty, and invited children from the local library “Atillka”. The presentation was dynamic and interactive, as both John and Jonah became storytellers. Endowed with personal connections and importance, they brought their stories to life!
Both books are unique in their format and thematic content, and will be published as part of the collection, in September, 2017.
