To celebrate National Letter Writing
To celebrate National Letter Writing Month and as a warm up for Amy Walton’s letter writing workshop at 11a, Lanie DeLay will read The Lonely Typewriter by Peter Ackerman and Seven Little Postmen by Margaret Wise Brown and Edith Thatcher Hurd.
Get your little ones ready for a life of letters and the bookstore’s all-ages writing event with our two morning stories about typewriters and the magic of mailed correspondence.
There will be paper, pens, pencils and upper- and lower-case letter stamps for kids to use. There is also a wonderful antique Underwood typewriter the children can try out!
Lanie DeLay has worked at Dallas Contemporary, the Dallas Public Library, Hamon Arts Library at SMU, at area preschools and the School For The Blind in Austin. She has written for Glasstire and Art&Seek, and she tutors children in early reading skills at Dealey Montessori. When she isn’t looking at art or reading with kids, she’s reading about art or looking for a new read.
It’ll be a 45 minute read followed by a short discussion with the kids–that’s going to be interesting, we can’t wait to see what they come up with.
All ages are welcome.
On Sunday morning bring your kids and infuse them with a love for reading.
