‘Press it’ or ‘Shred it’? (grades 45, registration required)

Children's Department

Jan 18

Thu 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

For kids in grades 4 – 5, registration required.

How many of you have ever wondered what it would be like to have the power to “reject” or “accept” and real manuscript and decide whether or not a story has the potential to be published?  Well, here’s your chance!  Over the duration of four meetings, participants will be given an authentic story written by an unnamed, local author to read, discuss and critique while also learning more about the process of book writing.  By the end of this program, not only will kids leave with further knowledge and tips for storytelling, writing and editing, they’ll be given the opportunity to cast their vote to either “Press!” or “Shred” the mystery title that awaits them.
