Kidwriters! Join me for a special writing workshop!

We are very lucky indeed to have Once Upon A Time Bookstore in our neck of the woods. It is the oldest, continuously running children's bookstore in the whole U.S.A. Maureen Palacios, the owner, is a dedicated, hardworking book wrangler who also offers book-related fun stuff for the community to enjoy. This Monday, June 25th, I will be offering a workshop from 6-7:30 p.m. to kids who want to try their own hands at writing. We are going to delve into creating complex characters. Each workshopper will create two different characters with their own backgrounds and quirks. Then we're going to drop those fictional folks into different situations and see how they react? (Sounds almost like a science experiment, doesn't it?) If you can't make it Monday, please note the other fabulous authors conducting workshops of their own: July 2 - Cecil Castelucci July 9 - Pseudonymous Bosch July 16 - Lin Oliver and Theo Baker July 23 - Leslie Margolis July 30 - Lisa Yee August 6 - Stuart Gibbs Call ahead if you want to reserve a spot! Hope to see some of you there! 2207 Honolulu Ave La Crescenta-Montrose, CA 91020 (818) 248-9668
