Teen Big Read Event - Author Workshop with Mitali Perkins

Calling all teens grades 6 to 12! Join us at the San Leandro Main Library on Thursday, March 5 from 3:45-4:45 pm for a workshop with teen author Mitali Perkins! Register today at the Main Library Children's Desk or call 577-3960.

Writing well about place intensifies plot and brings characters to life. In this workshop, teens consider how good writing engages all five senses, underlines a literary theme, and takes readers on journeys to other places. A directed exercise allows participants to apply and demonstrate what they've gained from the workshop.

This is a free event and part of the Big Read program. The Big Read is a program of the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with Arts Midwest.
