When a Child is Born So is a Hero
This book is the end product of an effective working relaitonship between two very diverse. yet related, efforts. 1) an 8th grade writing assignment in the Altoona, WI Middle school; 2) a series of writings by or about grandmothers that led to the publication of 8 editions of a book entitled "Poetica Grandma-tica." John Thurston had been asked to tell the story about these projects and how they came together to produce this book.
