Three groups of students at Passages Academy's Belmont site received a visit and books from Paul Griffin, author of Stay With Me, Burning Blue, The Orange Houses, and Ten Mile River. Paul fielded questions with his trademark graciousness and encouraged students to work on telling their own stories. "Very inspirational!" remarked one participant, summing up the experience of many. --Jessica Fenster-Sparber
