Roosevelt High’s writing and publishing center published its first anthology, “Where the Roses Smell Best: A Literary Companion to Portland,” including pieces from students and prominent local writers, such as Oregon’s poet laureate Paulann Petersen.
It is wonderful when a publication succeeds on so many levels. This book is all about making a difference for Portland’s youth at Roosevelt High School.
At the same time it features wonderful works by local writers such as Paulann Petersen and Kim Stafford and Jennifer Springsteen. (And I’m in it, too.)
