Pulaski students featured in new book, ‘Green Card Youth Voices’

October 3, 2019

The stories of students from Pulaski High School are featured prominently in the new book, Green Card Youth Voices: Immigration Stories from Madison and Milwaukee High Schools. A launch party was held in September to celebrate the publication, allow students to read their stories, and autograph books for family and friends.

Hosted at Latino Arts, Inc., the event highlighted the latest edition in a series of books collecting the stories of students from across the country. Green Card Voices was launched as a nonprofit organization to chronicle the stories of immigrants and increase appreciation of newcomers to the United States.

The new book contains the stories of Pulaski students as well as students from James Madison Memorial High School in Madison, Wisconsin. Narratives were created with the help of editor Tea Rozman Clark. Students had the chance to be part of the process of storytelling, editing, and publishing, and learned about the challenges of bringing a book concept to life.

Pulaski students were honored at a meeting of the Milwaukee Board of School Directors in September.
