Mom Carries On Son’s Memory With Comic Book Class

Bookmark and Share

While budget cuts have lead to art and music being taken away from a Paterson, New Jersey school, one mother has decided to honor the memory of her child by allowing students to participate in comic book writing workshops, taught by professional comic book writer Alex Simmons.  The Christopher Barron Live Life Foundation also is helping make this possible.

Suzanne Barron lost her son to Leukemia in 2007.  Her son Christopher loved creating comic books, even selling them on their front lawn.

Students at School 21 lost their arts program due to budget cuts, even losing their librarian.  The workshop runs for six weeks.

CBS New York has video of the story.
