Apprentices of the Book Empire

 

Are you a young author or illustrator? Then register today for the Apprentices of the Book Empire, an authors and illustrators Club for grades 2-6.  Starting Wednesday, September 12th, bring your finished story or manuscript to be illustrated and peer reviewed. Later, you will illustrate someone else’s story, learn about book design and the publishing process, and have your story published by the library! By the end of this five-week program, your story will be an official library book for others to check out and admire.
