Is There An Author In The House?

Building a story is like making a pizza - and we all have a story to tell. What ingredients will you add to your story? Let's have fun and write one together!

We all have a story to tell. Jazz legend Ella Fitzgerald told her story with song. Actress Marilyn Monroe told her story with movie performances. And I tell mine with books. I’ll read Making Their Voices Heard: The Inspiring Friendship of Ella Fitzgerald and Marilyn Monroe. We’ll chat about the four basic elements of every story and attendees will have the opportunity to write (and illustrate) their own stories. There will be time for a Q&A, plus an invitation to participate in #50PreciousWordsforKids, the writing challenge I host every May.
