Zainab Almatwari, a senior of Westbrook High School has nothing but good things to say about Quill Books & Beverage. “My journey at Quill started with a poetry performance my sophomore year when I was asked to present a co-authored book made by The Telling Room, myself, and some of my author peers from Westbrook High. Since then, I never stopped coming back. Whether as juniors hanging out to have fun, creating posters for events, or planning and writing out bills for government programs. As a senior, I return to Quill as a research assistant where I meet my employer, mentor, and professor every week to research and write her book. I have multiple personal connections to Quill, but writing and friends are the most dominant. Every corner of Quill holds a memory, especially the navy blue chair where there are close plugs to charge and a petite, white table where my chai latte rests”.
