8/26, August 26, has always meant a fun anniversary celebration here at 826 Valencia. Recently we celebrated our tenth anniversary with our third annual Write-a-thon. Writers of all ages raised money to benefit 826, then put pen to paper to finish their novels, poems, and short stories.
Huffington Post writer Nicki Richesin chronicled this event in her article
