Join us for the last Teen Summer Reading Program event!

Some writers know exactly what they want to say or write about. Others stumble on it by accident. In this workshop we'll explore how to get inspired and live the write life. Led by Melissa Fraterrigo, director of Lafayette Writers Studio. Open to all writers (experienced and aspiring) between the ages of 12-18.

No registration required, but please arrive on time. You won't want to miss a thing!
