This is an installment of our occasional series, “Storytellers” –personal, first-person narratives from metro Atlantans.

Rachel Trignano is an Atlanta-based writer. Her work has appeared in Loose Change Magazine and in Chorus—a poetry anthology edited by Saul Williams.

She visited our studios to share her story of growing up in her family’s New Jersey toy store, “Hell is a City Much Like Newark.”
