What is happening in The Room?

Join us on 
Thursday, March 28th from 6:00 to 8:30 PM 
at the Boys & Girls Club of Wakefield for an encore of last year's youth event:
Young Writers and Illustrators Meet, Greet & Create!
Come for the hot cocoa! Stay for the creative community! 

This is a fun and casual way to meet and get to know the local writers and illustrators behind the books you read. You will have a chance to ask questions, learn some tricks of the trade, stretch your creativity and take home a signed book for FREE! 

Published writers and illustrators representing everything from picture books to middle grade books to graphic novels and young adult literature look forward to meeting you!

Special thanks to our sponsors:

----- YES WE HAVE TWO MEET-AND-GREET-STYLE EVENTS IN MARCH! (One for youth and one for adults:) -----

Join us on 
Wednesday, March 20th from 6:30 to 8:30 PM 
at Cedric's Studio Meet and Workspace for our quarterly, adult:
Writers and Illustrators Meet & Greet

This is always a great way to enjoy the local community of local writers and illustrators for FREE! 

Join us for a casual event open to writers and illustrators at all levels and from all genres to meet each other over a cup of tea or coffee and some sweet treats. If you are trying to get back into your writing, hoping to find motivation or information from others who love words--stop by! Bring business cards if you have some to share and take this opportunity to see the space available to writers at a discount through a recent partnership with Cedric's Studio Meeting and Workspace.
