Our Awards Ceremony and Journeys Reading is an annual celebration of the adult literacy community in Minnesota. The evening will include an awards ceremony where adult literacy students, volunteers, and community partners will receive awards recognizing their outstanding achievements. It will also feature student readings.  Adult literacy students will read their original stories and poems, many of which are featured in Journeys: An Anthology of Adult Student Writing.
