Young authors celebrate literacy

Nellicia Klop read from her book about a boy surviving the Haitian earthquake, Dancing in the Rain, which won a prize from the summer writing contest held through the Storytime in the Park program. Anya Hu, in front, also won, with her book called Anya and the Magic Violin.
