This group of Maine students is publishing a book using their experiences from the pandemic

They're working on their own book while managing the struggles of remote learning


This group of students at Farwell Elementary School in Lewiston, Maine, have been working on publishing their own books. The books are an adaptation of their mentor, Gary Savage's novels, altered to include their experiences of life during the pandemic.

The Author Studies program has been around for years. However, during the pandemic students had to get creative and find virtual ways to work together. Some students were worried the program would not be able to continue this year. Many students were relieved and excited the program was still taking place.

Hear about their story in the video above.
