YAWP Summer 2019 Playlist Series: Old Town Road

grubstreet Image

In anticipation of 75-degree-or-higher weather, endless waffle cones of ice cream, and later curfews, we’ve asked teen instructors to describe their upcoming teen class as a pop song. Our next instructor in our YAWP Summer Playlist series is Emmanuel Oppong-Yeboah, associate editor at Pizza Pi Press, and the reviews editor at Winter Tangerine.

In anticipation of 75-degree-or-higher weather, endless waffle cones of ice cream, and later curfews, we’ve asked teen instructors to describe their upcoming teen class as a pop song. Our next instructor in our YAWP Summer Playlist series is E.B. Bartels, author of Good Grief: On Loving Pets, Here and Hereafter, forthcoming from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt.
