826 Boston's "A Place for Me in the World"
A Place for Me in the World, 826 Boston, students, book, work In the grand tradition of oral historian Studs Terkel, a group of middle school students from Mission Hill School in Roxbury has written a book titled "A Place for Me in the World: People Talk About the Work They Love." With the help of volunteers and staffers at 826 Boston — a non-profit dedicated to teaching creative and expository writing — the book's authors contemplated their own career aspirations and then conducted interviews with over 45 mostly local workers ranging from a ventriloquist to a benefits coordinator at the MBTA. The Boston Globe called it a "magnificent book" and Boston Magazine says it's "the best Boston book you'll buy this year." We talk with the minds behind it.

Guests:
  Daniel Johnson, executive director of 826 Boston
  Alia Hameda Forrest, In-School Project Coordinator for 826 Boston
  Shantel Mercedes, 8th grader at Mission Hill School and co-author/editor of "A Place for Me in the World"
