Read more about the fun below:
Bas Bleu Theater opens its doors Saturday, October 24 from 1:00pm to 4:00pm to the youth of Northern Colorado with an afternoon of writing games, food and prizes, to celebrate new books from beloved authors. Book-loving kids 9-14 and their parents are invited to join Victoria Hanley, Todd Mitchell, Laura Resau and Teresa R. Funke for a carnival of reading and writing.
Each author is known to local school children not only for their award-winning books, but also for their energetic and educational school visits. Through the Writing Glass is the first time all four will come together to give readings and guide kids and parents alike through writing games.
Sponsored by Bas Bleu Theatre, Through the Writing Glass is part of the organization’s continued effort to support literacy, storytelling and local youth. Authors will sign copies upon request. The Indigo Notebook by Laura Resau is published by Delacort; V for Victory by Teresa R. Funke is published by Victory House Press; Violet Wings by Victoria Hanley is published by Egmont USA; The Secret to Lying by Todd Mitchell will be released by Candlewick in June, 2010.
No tickets are required; this is a free event!
