The Little Theater at Logan filled with students waiting to hear Sonia Nazario, Los Angeles Times reporter and author of Enrique’s Journey
, speak on her bestselling novel last week.
Nazario has been reporting about social issues for more than two decades and has won the Pulitzer Prize.
For two class periods, Logan students got an insider's view on the life of immigrants and controversial immigration issues. The author's visit was made possible by The AllState Foundation and Facing History and Ourselves a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping teachers lead their students in examining the history of mass genocide and violence.

Hilary Duff released her fifth album last week entitled Dignity.
Since her fame from the hit Disney Original Series, Lizzie McGuire,
Duff has become a successful artist and actress. Whether or not she deserves the success is a whole different story. This time, Duff stayed away from the typical bubblegum pop she is known to sing. She instead decided to go into more of the electronic-sounding and dance-pop, according to Duff. Although it is good to see a change, this style seems to be overdone on this album. The only positive part of Dignity
is her maturing lyrics.
