Great Stories Club: Finding Your Voice/Encontrando Tu Voz

December 20, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm



For this workshop based on Piecing Me Together by Renee Watson, we will supply the teens with canvas, paint, and materials to use to create collage art.  Additionally, at the end of this series, participants will be invited to submit any of their poems, collages, or journal entries to compile into a published book highlighting their collected work.

The Pawling Library is honored to have been selected as one of 58 libraries nationwide to take part in the Great Stories Club, a reading and discussion program for underserved teens. These competitive grants are offered by the American Library Association (ALA) with support from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH).

The Library has received two Great Stories Grants and will be partnering with Camino al Exito to bring teens age 13 & up a book discussion series in English & Spanish.


Para este taller basado en Piecing Me Together de Renee Watson, proporcionaremos a los adolescentes lienzos, pintura y materiales para crear arte de collage. Además, al final de esta serie, se invitará a los participantes a enviar cualquiera de sus poemas, collages o entradas de diario para compilar en un libro publicado que destaque su trabajo recopilado.
