The creative writing program at Alhambra High is brewing with originality. The class presents the 29th Annual Backroads Coffeehouse on Thursday, May 28, at the Alhambra Performing Arts Building. The evening will showcase the students’ artistic talents by bringing together student poets, musicians and dancers. This stirring community event begins at 7pm and coffee from Mountain Grounds will be provided during intermission.
Can’t make it to the Coffeehouse? Class work can also be viewed on their website, backroadspoetry.com. Student Andrew Silva has played a significant role as Webmaster and image maker for Backroads and said, “I created the website and logos, I keep the site up to date, and I email potential donors. Starting this year, we decided to host the website (backroadspoetry.com) to showcase our local talent online 24/7 as opposed to only annually. Basically, I'm just a student in Mr. Schain's creative writing class that enjoys helping get the word out about Backroads.”
