Letson chronicles his summer working as a creative writing teacher at the Sanctuary on 8th Street, a nonprofit serving children in Springfield. Funny, poignant and ultimately inspiring, Summer in Sanctuary will take you into the heart of a community and leave you with a better understanding of the world.
Told through monologue, poetry, song and sound-rich reporting, Summer in Sanctuary takes you beyond the statistics to reveal the unseen challenges and complexities facing students in underserved communities across the country.
