The Rotary Clubs of Shrewsbury and Worcester held their second annual book launch event Wednesday, March 28, 2018, at 6:00 p.m. at the Shrewsbury High School.  The event is the culmination of a year-long project that created a book of creative writing by students from Abby Kelley Foster Charter Public School and Doherty High School in Worcester, Grafton High School and Shrewsbury High School. 

The book called “From My Heart 2018” gave students the opportunity to be creative beyond their normal classroom work, to be published which may provide an advantage for college applicants, to meet and socialize with other students who participated and to build their self-esteem.

At this event, students, their families, teachers, local dignitaries and Rotarians gathered for dinner and a program.  The books were distributed and several students read their works to the program attendees.  Local author, Henry Grampietro, was the keynote speaker at the book launch party. 


This is an annual project of the Shrewsbury and Worcester Rotary Clubs and will continue to be expanded to include other schools in the coming years.
