Each year, Ms. Garvoille leads the Publishing Club in producing a professional, self-published collection of student memoirs. Covering topics from the power of the arts to the effects of abuse, from journeys of faith to chronicles of friendship, these collections remind adult and teen readers alike to look beyond the friends, the classmates, the students, or the children we think we know, and listen to their voices.
