Invent new words and unleash your creativity during this writing workshop.

Join children’s author Anna Brooke for an event dedicated to exploring imaginative writing, inventing words and where ideas come from. This activity is entirely in English, and no translation will be provided.

All participants must be able to understand and speak English in order to participate in the program. Children between the ages 8–12 may participate in Library programs on their own, while their chaperone remains inside the Library. All children participating in this workshop must be able to write and read in English.
