Children’s Storytime Room
Jennifer Trafton, author of "The Rise and Fall of Mount Majestic", will teach a 6-week series of foundational creative writing classes introducing kids to a writer's way of looking at the world. Different sessions will be held throughout the year. When you register for the 1st session for the 6-week program, you have registered for all the sessions in the 6-week program. Limit of 10 students per 6-week session.

Painting with Words: October 21st & 28th, November 4th & 18th, and December 2nd & 9th

During this 6-week session, the writers will learn to be "spies in the universe" by paying close attention to the world around them, find astonishment in ordinary things, start a
word collection, and then use some basic writing tools to "paint pictures with words." This will be a very fun, interactive, and hands-on class.

Register online or call Amanda Chappell at 615-371-0090 ext. 8290 or the Children’s Library ext. 8380. Dates are subject to change.
