I bet someone's going to ask me for an autograph." -Brianna Burgos, age 11, author T IS FOR TEXAS "My favorite part was learning words about Texas and trying to make them rhyme." -John Gomez, age 11, author T IS FOR TEXAS"I'm so proud to have my poems in a book. I will remember this forever." -Sebastian Lopez, age 11, author T IS FOR TEXAS"Writing these poems showed me that Texas and poetry are AWESOME." -Ernest Manzo, age 9, author T IS FOR TEXAS"Developing T is for Texas was such an enriching experience for our youth. They were able to not only learn more about their home state, but also learn about poetry and the creative process. Our members are so excited to have a book that they can share with their families; and we are excited to share their ingenuity with our supporters." -Daphne Barlow Stigliano, president of Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Fort Worth
