Forty Shapleigh School students celebrated their book release on Tuesday, March 19, 2019 at the Star Theatre in the Kittery Community Center. This celebration was the culmination of a 12-week writing residency with Teaching Artist Elisabeth Aroneau from the Telling Room. Students were elated to see the finished product after months of work. They shared selections from their work to a packed audience of friends, family and community members.
