Young Writers' Workshop: Jane Kelley, Walking in Someone Else's Shoes

Tuesday, November 14, 2017 - 5:30 PM | For Members and Guests | For grades 3-8 | Whitridge Room | $15 per person, payable at the door | Advance registration required

In this ongoing series young writers are invited to join notable authors in exploring different genres. Novelist Jane Kelley will share how empathy helps authors create realistic characters, whether they’re a frightened kid, a soldier, an astronaut, or even an animal. Participants will learn how “walking in someone else’s shoes” can improve their writing and strengthen their connection to others. 

Children's and Young Adult programs are generously funded by Richard Peck.
