St. Clair County Library Presents Final Edition Of 100-Year Anniversary Speaker Series

As part of the 100-year anniversary speaker series, the St. Clair County Library System will present Writing Magic:  A Writing Workshop and Presentation with Gail Carson Levine. This is a free, ticketed event which will occur on Thursday,  October 26th, 2017 at the Blue Water Convention Center from 5:30-9:30 pm. Doors will open at 5 with general admission
seating.   Gail Carson Levine is a New York writer of children’s and young adult novels. Before an editor picked up her book, Ella Enchanted, a Newberry Honor book, Levine had received nine years of rejection letters. The success of Ella Enchanted enabled Levine to retire from her job in government to pursue a full-time writing career. Throughout her career Levine has led many writing workshops for children where she teaches them a number of writing exercises. These classes led to the development of her non-fiction book Writing Magic: Creating Stories That Fly, a book for children about writing. According to St. Clair County Administrator Karry Hepting, on Thursday, (con’t)October 26th, Levine will be sharing her love of reading, and her passion to encourage children to write, in a workshop at the Blue Water Convention Center, at 5:30 p.m., with a general presentation at 6:30, followed by a book signing. Books will be available on-site to purchase courtesy of the Fort Gratiot Barnes and Noble store.  Free tickets for the Gail Carson Levine event may be obtained by going to the library website: www.stclaircountylibrary.org, or by visiting your nearest St. Clair County Library System branch.
