Sign-in begins at 11:00. Writers Table begins at 11:15. Drop in any time.
Please join us on September 14, 2019 for:
Making your child (or grandchild) a Hero.
Create an illustrated children’s book!
Dot will discuss:
- Why you might want to think about making a special child in your life the hero in his or her own story
- Approaching the project
o Warning: audience participation required here!
- Why I did it and what became of it
Dorothy (Dot) Edwards recently published her first children’s story, Langston’s Moon, a picture book about a young boy who sees the full moon for the first time and believes it is a giant sugar cookie. When the moon dwindles to a tiny sliver, he fears a sky monster has eaten it and the moon will disappear forever.
