My father used to say, ‘what doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger.’
As a parent of young writers, I’m always looking for fresh opportunities to engage and inspire the storytellers lurking within my kids. Whether you’re an Asheville Middle School Cougars fan or not, this one looks promising:
Join Moira Bradford’s eighth-grade class from the school this evening at Malaprop’s, as they provide readings from their own stories on character transformation.
We’ve all been there, of course…facing some difficult moment or challenging period as a young person, and lived to tell the tale—having been indelibly marked and changed forever. For a young writer, an important moment comes when we’re able to transmit the experience via the printed page, in a way that resonates with others.
Come on down to Malaprop’s tonight at 7 p.m. (best come early if you want a seat). Can’t make it tonight? There’s another reading January 17, same time, same place.
Need more info? Call Malaprop’s at 254-6734.
