Program description: Birth of a Book is a glimpse into what it truly takes to be a writer and what happens behind the scenes in the world of publishing. Using Eric's series KEY HUNTERS and THE CHOCOLATE LAB as springboards, this presentation hits topics relevant to students including where ideas come from, the importance of (and good techniques for) revision, and all of the questions kids might have about being an author. This presentation can be incorporated with my other writing workshop for smaller groups. Age Range: Elementary.
