You Might Can’t Come Back: The P.S. 316 Guide to the Universe

You Might Can't Come Back: Essays Written By 826NYC Students at P.S. 316 Elijah Stroud Elementary is a travel guide in the form of an anthology of short essays where students offer portraits of the special places that comprise their worlds. The essays are rich with poetic details, scientific facts, and loving tributes to spots in the United States (from Prospect Park to California), around the globe (with stops in the Caribbean, the Maldives, Montenegro, Paris, Malawi, Yemen, and Japan) and spanning the universe (lunch time near Saturn, dinner in the far reaches of the Rainbow Galaxy). Join them on an adventure across our "round and chaotic world". Proceeds from the sale of this book benefit 826NYC, a nonprofit organization encouraging the exploration of endless possibilities through the power of writing.
