Saturday Writers Celebrates Writing for All Ages and Christmas Party

This Saturday, December 6, 2008 at 10 a.m., Saturday Writers will recognize the winners of our children's and teens' writing contests and host a workshop  and book signing by children's writer Jody Feldman, author of The Gollywhopper Games. We will meet at the St. Peters Community and Arts Center, located at 1035 St. Peters Howell Road.

From the website:
"Everyone who participated in the contest and entered a story is invited to the St. Peters Community and Arts Center, located at 1035 St. Peters Howell Road, at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, December 6. Jody Feldman, children’s author of The Gollywhopper Games (www.jodyfeldman.com), will present a program for parents, teachers, and students. She will also give out the awards and participation certificates, and she will have a book signing after the awards’ ceremony. Door prizes, a raffle, and refreshments will be provided.

Look below for a more detailed schedule. We hope you can all join us. (Children do not have to come to the entire morning to receive their awards, but we hope they will. Jody is a wonderful speaker and teacher. In the past, some children have been dropped off or had one parent stay for the program/workshop, and the rest of the family came at the awards’ ceremony time. That is great, too! Whatever works best for your family, we encourage."

After the workshop, we'll be having our Christmas party at 1 p.m., so bring a covered dish to share and a writing book for our white elephant gift exchange. See the schedule of events below.
