WE ARE ALL STORYTELLERS: WRITING FROM YOUR FAMILY CULTURE

We all have our own cultures and heritages - let's use our unique voices to tell our special stories. SADIE'S SHABBAT STORIES celebrates family history and the power of storytelling. Come with paper and pen to mine your family background and heirlooms in order to create your stories.

Through a lively, interactive presentation, I help children mine their family histories and cultures to tell their own stories. We can brainstorm together to find story ideas. We will discuss research, writing, and story revision. Also, children can enhance connections to family members by learning interview techniques to capture their family stories. I read SADIE'S SHABBAT STORIES, and talk about the Chagall-inspired illustrations. Of course, I leave plenty of time for questions and comments. I look forward to our Talkabook Visit!
