Voices of Adult Learners

Voice 2020 front cover

25th Annual Voices of Adult Learners (2021)

Hosted by: TJACE@PVCC 

Voices of Adult Learners is a celebration bringing together adults from literacy, GED, and ESL education programs to share their compelling stories. Students enrolled in literacy and adult education programs have composed a variety of writings about everyday life, traditions, childhood and personal stories. This is a yearly Virginia Festival of the Book  event. Due to the Pandemic, we are happy to share our stories with you virtually.
