Hey, people! Now that the Summer Reading Challenge is over, it's time for some exciting new programs for children at A Great Good Place for Books.

Coming up first is a new GRAPHIC NOVEL WRITING WORKSHOP.

The Graphic Novel Workshop is a 6-week writing workshop, taught by a credentialed teacher (me), that shows kids that reading and writing can be easy and fun. Students will read and discuss their favorite graphic novels during the first part of each class, and the second half will be devoted to building a story with dialogue and narration. At the end of the workshop, students will produce their own 3-page comic.

Who: Kids age 8 and up.
When: Sundays from 5-6:30 p.m., beginning September 12th and ending October 24th.
Where: A Great Good Place for Books, 6120 La Salle Ave, Oakland CA 94611
How much: $180. This includes all supplies, materials, snacks, and a "gallery opening" and pizza party on October 24th.

You can email me at to register.
