A Scriber Lake book: A third book is on its way for Scriber Lake High School student authors.

A reading event for their latest collection of stories, “Behind Closed Doors: Stories from the Inside Out,” is set for 6-8 p.m. Tuesday at Café Louvre, 210 Fifth Ave. S., Suite 101, in Edmonds.

“It’s fantastic — really strong writing,” teacher Marjie Bowker said. “I can’t begin to tell you how rewarding it has been to witness the transformations that occur during the writing process.”

The book follows her class’ previous volume, “You’ve Got it All Wrong,” which was recently selected by Edmonds Community College to be next school year’s Community Read.

The students’ first work, published in 2012, is “We Are Absolutely Not Okay: Fourteen Stories by Teenagers Who Are Picking Up the Pieces.”
