ONE YEAR LIVED by Adam Shepard
Volunteer, Adam Shepard has published his third book and it includes a chapter describing his two months working with HCA during the Vacation Activities Program (VAP)!
“We had just returned from a morning spent playing outside, the whole group was strewn across the concrete floor around me—sweaty, every one of them—and here was my orientation: Erlin, all four and a half feet, eighty pounds of Erlin, sat near my lap, beseeching me to read the book again, the first time this had happened to me since my arrival in El Porvenir. Story time can be fun, but it’s never quite as fun as soccer or Steal the Bacon or jumping rope or races. For them, story time is the brief-as-we-can-make-it gateway from snack time to time back out on the field.But here they were, ordering another reading. “Otra vez!” they all shouted, one on top of the other. “Otra vez!” Click to Read More -or- Click Here to Buy the Book!
