(article) Listening Party at Martin Middle School

Last Friday, the Stories Producing Team (Marcelo, Brian and Michelle) along with Texas Folklife's Charlie Lockwood & Executive Director Cristina Balli gathered at the Martin Middle School Library located in East Austin. We completed a semester residency in Ms. Karydas' Enrichment class and last Friday we listened to the final stories. The students successfully crafted audio documentaries about Martin Middle School and the surrounding neighborhood. Topics ranged from volleyball to ghosts, to Flea Markets-the students were surprised when they realized Ms. Karydas had invited the principal along with several other classes to the "listening" party.  Full-Library and all we wrapped up another semester of Stories! Martin Middle School is AWESOME and we thank everyone that made it possible!
