On Saturday, October 19, seventeen children and thirteen adults attended the Be an Author! program at Southwest Library presented by Maria Cox, Ph.D., co-owner of Dancing Lilies Press; Children's Book Publisher, and author of the loved Virginia -Lee series.
Over the next few months, Southwest Library will feature several of the children and their stories on our blog. The children or "kid authors" (in the same vein asTheodore Boone, Kid Lawyer by John Grisham!) spent the afternoon learning a fun approach for how to write a story using descriptive sentences and how to draw illustrations to represent their story with different levels of detail.
Our first featured kid author is Jordan. He loves all kinds of cars but focused his story on one of his favorites, the Chevy Camaro. He called his story Cars: Chevy Camaro
