Join us this President's Day morning for a fun writing workshop! Fantasy and reality come together as Phantom Stallion author Terri Farley leads young writers inside the secret world of wild horses.
After a short visual introduction to wild horse families, predators and environments, writers create animal characters to star in action-packed, fact-based fiction. Each writer may end the session as the author of an original story -- in graphic or traditional format -- that no one else could have written!
This workshop is intended for grades 5-9, and is free, though registration is required. Space is limited.
