Design of a shooting star

Ladue Horton Watkins High School’s Craig Pomranz, Class of 1974, is igniting an international conversation about embracing our differences among readers with his book, Made by Raffi.

Made By Raffi was shortlisted from 1,000’s of books internationally for the Little Rebel Children’s Book Award. Composers Amanda McBroom (Bette Midler’s “The Rose”) and Michele Brourman (The Land Before Time) wrote a song “Different” to be attached to the book.
