I swung by 826 Valencia while I was in San Francisco this weekend (photo above). The pirate store was just as fun and funny as ever. As I stood reading the top ten pracitical jokes to play on pirates (5. Switch his monkey with one that pinches), a trap door above me opened and five mop heads fell on my head. Everyone in the store clapped. It was the second time I've been mopped, so luckily I didn't scream. :)
I also peeked into the back room, where all the wonderful writing happens. A few teenagers were hustling around, possibly setting up for a workshop.
It was great to see the space, and imagine it full of kids writing and talking, laughing and sharing their work. We don't have anything like 826 Valencia in Boise, but I wish we did.
Support 826 Valencia and give kids who WANT to write the opportunity. All it takes is a click.
