Event Description (from Crystal)

Got kids? Are you a kid at heart? This December 10, I’ll be at the Rogers Park branch of the Chicago Public Library doing some cool interactives around my children’s novel, Bird.

We’ll talk a bit about Bird, but then as the story’s two protagonists want to be a geologist and astronaut, there’ll be time for the kids to talk about what they want to be when they grow up, and why, and explore a bit about geology and astronomy/space. Additionally, we’ll do a mini poetry workshop, based off of landscape pictures that the kids will choose. Finally, we’ll have an activity based off of what happens in the book, involving stones and dirt, and the kids will get the chance to design and take home a stone with personal meaning to them.

Books will be for sale onsite, if the kids want a signed copy, but there are copies at the library to check out. There will be CPL books on geology, astronomy/space, and poetry for the kids to check out as well.
