WORKSHOPS AND SCHOOLS

Hey Teachers!

Think like a Writer with your Students

Fun, interactive workshop for grades 3-6!

Act out a story with simple props, discuss motivation, and write your own retelling of classic tales. It’s time to reconsider the hearts some of our favorite good and bad guys.

A terrific introduction to the writing and storytelling process, the “Think like a Writer” workshop helps train students to think critically about the books they read, the movies they watch, and the stories they write.

Appearances

We’ve hosted two successful author visits with Ted Kelsey. Because our shop is rather small and doesn’t have space that’s ideal for readings/signings, I was intrigued by his suggestion to set up a small table outside in order to interact with customers. It turned out to be a great plan, drawing lots of attention from passersby who came in to purchase his books, often along with items from our own stock—a win-win situation for all involved! I’m so glad he opened us up to the idea of hosting events like this.
