Mindful Writing Workshops with poet and educator James Crews

Saturday October 13 & 20, 2:30pm

In this generative writing workshop, we’ll examine connections between the practice of meditation/mindfulness and the act of writing fearlessly from the heart. Using quotes and other written works as prompts, we will complete several exercises that invite us to pay closer attention to ourselves, our lives, and the world around us as we do our best to define the term, “mindfulness,” and what it means for each of us. Though not required, attendees will be invited to share their work with each other during the session. Beginners and all skill levels are welcome. Space is extremely limited – choose which workshop you’d like to attend and RSVP today!

Book Character Pumpkins

Saturday October 20, 10:30am

Join us in the Children’s Room to paint, carve and adorn pumpkins to resemble your favorite literary characters!
