imagesirememberI Remember Warm Rain: 15 Teenagers, 15 Coming to America Stories
By Various (Maine authors)

Fifteen students, from countries such as Somalia, Iraq, Sudan, and Iran are represented in this anthology. In it, you meet Ali killing hyenas and Arunda speaking to his father by phone after ten years of believing he is dead. You meet Kahiye, revealing his first experience of snow, and Stella doing something once forbidden to her, playing a game she loves: soccer.

These rich stories were written as part of The Telling Room’s yearlong Story House Project, a multi-media initiative built on the collaborative efforts of local artists, writers, filmmakers, sound technicians, teachers and the 15 young storytellers who bravely told their tales of leaving home in hopes of finding a new one in America.
