3 pm: Matt de la Peña: From Reluctant Reader to Award-Winning
Bestselling author and Newbery medalist Matt de la Peña
wasn't always a writer--or even much of a reader! In this workshop,
you'll hear about his journey from reluctant reader to award-winning
author of books like Last Stop on Market Street and Mexican WhiteBoy.
Matt's own story is bound to inspire you to pick up pen and paper
yourself, so bring all your questions about writing, or even ideas for
your own stories! This workshop is geared toward kids ages 8-12. The
first 25 kids to attend this program will receive a brand-new copy of
Matt's latest book, Miguel and the Grand Harmony.
One City, One Story Discussion
When most people show up to work,
they don’t expect to receive a meatloaf, but for Robert that’s just par
for the course. Through Robert’s job as an end-of-life care provider for
Holocaust survivors, and the recent death of his daughter, Somerville
author Daphne Kalotay explores themes of loss, community, and
rejuvenation in this year’s One City One Story selection, “Relativity.”
Pick up your free copy of the story at the East Boston Branch, and
then share your thoughts in this discussion of the story, led by East
Boston Programs and Outreach Librarian Djaz Idakaar.
