The Astoria High School Honors English 10 class is hosting Cultural Conversations on May 23 from 4:00-5:30 PM in the AHS Commons. The event Cultural Conversations is a chance to connect community members through their stories. Jenni Newton, who started the event, was inspired by the program “The Human Library.”
The students are hosting storytellers from a variety of cultures, over 20 different cultures will be shared. Tori Smith, a host for a storyteller representing Tae Kwon Do, says, “It’s a great chance to learn about other cultures in a unique way.” This year includes a Kenyan, a U.S. Coast Guard Officer, an Hispanic Immigrant, and someone living with cancer. Azaria Damghani, a student in the Honors class says she is, “most excited for being in one room with so many different cultures.”
