So. To say that I'm excited for this event at St. Victor School coming up on May 6th is a bit of an understatement. There's so much good stuff going on here, but I'll highlight a couple of the best parts of this event. First, it's a celebration of young authors and a showcase of their writing. Acknowledging a child's writing process and embracing their final product, their very own story, is so empowering for budding young writers! Second, the opportunity for children to come to a young author event and listen to a presentation by their literary hero like Raina Telgemeier or Gene Luen Yang would be truly inspirational.
Friends, there's something for everyone at this event including author presentations, book sales and signings, children's workshops, and resources for teachers and parents. I also have a small contributing role - a workshop promoting family writing activities. Want to know how you can develop writing skills with a magazine and some fortune cookies?
Come on out! This event is free.
