The last day of the IU trip to Newark began with an early morning Intensive Writing Workshop. Writing partners had to complete their stories and throughout the workshop, the Eval Team conducted reflection activities. The collaborators came in handy and they worked hard by filling any gaps, giving feedback and constructive criticisms, comic relief, and a rarely much needed distraction. Considering it was MLK Jr. weekend the Evaluation Team lead an MLK reflection. Finally, Friends of Books and Beyond, Nancy Uslan’s non-profit, hosted a fundraiser gala at Bangz salon in Montclair, New Jersey.

The evening was filled with celebrities, musical guests, performers, a fashion show (starring GV’s own Mallory Schreier), a silent and live auction, and a book signing by Michael Uslan.
