“Through My Eyes” Book Launch Moved to Discovery School
ST. CLOUD - The book launch for "Through My Eyes" on February 27th has been moved to Discovery Community School.
The book features a Somali girl as the protagonist. Discovery principal Tammy Wilson was inspired to write the book after she couldn't find any book with a main character her Somali students could fully relate to.
“As a principal of a school with a high Somali population, I saw a need for our students to see themselves represented in literature in our building. When I couldn’t find any, I went online and still couldn’t find one book.”
Wilson says several of her Somali students served as inspiration for the story. The book launch will be from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. A recognition event will be held from 12:45 p.m. to 1:00 p.m.
The launch was originally scheduled to be held at the St. Cloud Great River Regional Library.
