George M. Dawson students have released another book.? Writing 12 teacher David McLean said the book, Trains Are Forever, is a compilation of students’ writing, including ten pages of work from each of last year’s writing 12 students and Mr. McLean. The title came from a group exercise the class did while working with experimental writing. The book includes lyrics of songs written in class by Jordan Stewart-Burton whose song, A Land Called Haida Gwaii, received national air play on the CBC.”I’m so excited by the interest of the kids who weren’t in the class,” said Mr. McLean, who said the students really look up to the Grade twelves and appreciate a chance to read their personal journal writing.”It’s like we’ve made our diaries open to the public,” he said.The book, 176 pages, costs $22. Mr. McLean hopes it will be sold at a number of places on the island, but it can now be purchased through George M. Dawson Secondary School.
