That's a Wrap: #BookToAction
Thank you to our community partners for your support! The award-winning book, The 57 Bus, by Dashka Slater, reached over 1600 teens at Pacific Beach High School, Atascadero High School, Juvenile Hall, and San Luis Obispo High School. Our community panel with the author and local experts at the Atascadero Library generated thoughtful, inspiring discussion about juvenile justice, wellness, and other local issues.
