School-wide writing celebration idea

Very interested to read about The Cartonera Project, a school-wide writing celebration.

 writes: "Translated quite literally, a cartonera is a cardboard book. Cartoneras got their start in Argentina in 2003 as a way of making reading and writing accessible to all citizens, not just the upper class. Small, locally owned cartonera publishing houses would buy recycled cardboard and turn it into books. They’d add brightly colored covers using paint and other textiles. Then local authors, both known and new to publishing, added their stories. Local fairs and markets sold the cartoneras at cost.
