Every article is written by students, every page handcrafted to mimic an authentic publication from the decade, and professionally printed for display at the Magazine Launch Party. Students design creative booths to attract their niche market - anything from a nightclub with a live band to a restaurant with real food. Wear your swankiest 1920s garb and come on down to Da Vinci Charter Academy on Friday, February 22 between 6-8 pm to learn about this roaring period in our nation’s history. It’ll be the “bees knees.” Read the Davis Enterprise article.
