One night on their own, with NO grown-ups... One night of couch jumping and unlimited soda refills…. One night of surprises and secrets waiting to be shared…. Kids of any age can come hear what happens when two middle school friends devise a plan to spend an overnight in an IKEA furniture store. Wear your pajamas and bring a favorite stuffed toy or blanket. We’ll serve pizza and play games after the reading. https://www.catherinenewmanwriter.com/ ******************************************* Saturday, March 24 from 10am-12 noon -- Emily Neuburger: "Show Me a Story" and "Journal Sparks" craft activities. Let your imagination run wild! Kids ages 3 – 12 are invited to go to the unknown land of Story with Emily, and create imaginary lands with curious characters. Younger kids will use Story Disks to help build and develop plot, characterization, and setting. Older kids will use words, drawing, collage, and observation-based list-making to explore the many paths into journaling. http://www.emilyneuburger.com/ ******************************************** Saturday, March 31 from 3-5pm – Holly Black: "The Spiderwick Chronicles" - from book series to a movie. For kids ages 9 and up. Have you ever wondered where writers get their ideas for a book…and how a book becomes a movie? Holly Black will read from her series, The Spiderwick Chronicles and talk about making the movie. We’ll view clips from the movie, hear about some of the new books Holly is working on, and ponder the question “Are faeries real?” http://blackholly.com/ ********************************************
