Last week Thursday Grand Rapids Public Library hosted author Kekla Magoon as a kick-off to Teen Summer Reading. She made a morning stop at the Seidman Boys & Girls Club. In the afternoon twenty lucky on-the-ball teens registered for her afternoon writing workshop and spent a few hours improving their skills, sharing their writing, and discovering new ways to generate fresh ideas. The evening pizza party gave the public a chance to meet her and learn more about her first novel, The Rock and the River. Everyone who met Kekla had nothing but positive things to say about her.
Don’t feel like you’ve missed your chance to meet an author though! Several more will be visiting the Library as part of GR Reads. Check out our 27 events for a summer full of fun!
