Ms. Moayeri reviewed Tahereh Mafi's second realistic fiction novel, An Emotion of Great Delight, for Book and Film Globe.
This spring Lincoln High School students and staff were informed we were reopening our campus for in-person instruction.
Returning to school coincided with April, which is National Poetry Month.
Lincoln Library reached out to our Lincoln Tigers to ask the how they felt about returning, or not returning to campus, and to share their thoughts and feelings in a poem.
The goal was to create a community poem using individual lines from each submission.
This idea was sparked by poet and novelist Kwame Alexander who did something similar, but on a much larger scale, with the Civil Rights Memorial Center.
The following is the "Lincoln High School Back to School Community Poem" compiled from our own Lincoln Tigers' poetry submissions and put together in a Book Creator book.
