Teen Authors Document the Now

New Orleans, Louisiana – The Neighborhood Story Project has published eight books in which every day folks from New Orleans tell their stories through writing, interviews, and photography. This week the Neighborhood Story Project releases four new books by five teen authors - written over the course of two and a half years. The books -- Aunt Alice vs. Bob Marley by Kareem Kennedy, Houses of Beauty: From Englishtown to the Seventh Ward by Susan Henry, Beyond the Bricks by Daron Crawford and Pernell Russell, and Signed, the President, by Kenneth Phillips -- are personal accounts of life growing up in the Seventh Ward.
