MPWW's Annual Student Reading

Please join us for our annual student reading on October 30th. This year, we are also celebrating our tenth anniversary! Although we'll miss gathering with you in person, our virtual event promises to be another incredible, moving tribute. We will be joined by our alumni, teachers, mentors, family, and special guests who will read powerful poetry, fiction, and essays written by our students. We hope you can join us for another unforgettable night.
