Two August programs you don't want to miss . .

On Saturday August 1st at 10:00 am, join us for a reading of Legacy of a Free Spirit, presented by local author Lisa Allen Thompson.

"Legacy of a Free Spirit is a five-part novel that exemplifies freedom and self-determination in verses and short stories. The compilation is a "free spirit" that has lived many moons and made many trips around the sun. Legacy of a Free Spirit is a bold creative collection to stir the heart and soul and courageous spirit in all readers."
Signed copies will be available for purchase $5.00 per book.
Light refreshments will be served.
On Tuesday August 4th at 2:00 pm, we will proudly present Comic Construction with Matt from
Free Lunch Comics.

"Suitable for grades K-4, the Comic Construction Assembly and Lecture is an introduction to the medium of comics and graphic novels using a Construction Site Theme. We wear our construction outfits and guide students through the creation of a comics page, the construction of a character, and the life of a comic from script to press. The educational and entertaining performance encourages participation from the audience as we create the characters from a list of solicited characteristics and construct a full comics page with the aid of the students. Students learn the basics of comics mechanics, the basics of drawing from simple shapes, and creating a story with a beginning, middle, and ending. A proud participant in the Hartford Performs project."
