 Educational Events
Mankato Events Be A Teen Author
Teens in the Teen Advisory Group love to write. This series of programs will help them to make their dreams of becoming an author reality. First, Richard Robbins, Professor of English and Director of Creative Writing at MSU and two of his graduate students will lead a writing workshop to motivate and inspire the teens to write. A few weeks later, the MN Center of the Book Arts will teach the teens to make their own book. The workshop will use simple materials to that the teens can make more books at home on their own. Then, Richard Robbins and his students will return to lead a workshop about the editing and publishing process. Teens will submit their finished books to the library. The library will host a book launch party and then enter the finished books into the collection for six months.
For more information please contact Watonwan County Library: 507-375-1278
