Bailey student self-publishes book
Bailey Middle School student Briyana Mondesir has self-published her first novel after transforming what started as a fun and simple at-home writing project into a full-length book. Briyana began writing a story at the end of fifth-grade just for fun at home and even in the school cafeteria at lunch time. Once she was close to 50 pages, she set a goal of reaching 100 pages and then eventually kept going, while also deciding to turn it into a self-published book. “I want to be an author. I love to write. Ever since I learned to write, I've loved it," she said.
Teacher's art featured in local exhibit
Artwork and photography from Mark Battista, an art teacher for West Haven Public Schools, is being featured in a local exhibit starting August 7 at the Case Memorial Library in Orange. His work will be on display with photographs by David Bellucci, whose father, Art Bellucci, is a long-time music educator who taught for over 35 years in the West Haven School System. To find out more about Battista's work, visit markbattista.com. One of his paintings is pictured above.
