What is Rising Author's Club?
Northfield Township Area Library is working with Studentreasures Publishing to inspire young, local authors to write and illustrate. We will create a book of stories and illustrations that fit a theme. Each child involved will be responsible for 1 picture and 1 page of text that will be combined and published in a hardcover book. This book will be added to our collection and will be available for checkout.
How can my child participate?
Register to be an author at ntal.org/events and receive the official illustration and text draft pages. Your child will then write a story or poem and create an illustration. The pages will be due back at the library by a certain date in order to be shipped off for publishing. Parents will have the option to purchase their own copy of the book; however, no purchase is required for participation. This is a free program available to young patrons.
What is the theme and due date for the first book?
The first theme is 2020. This has been a unique year for many people. Share a story or poem about an adventure you've had this year.
All stories and illustrations are due back at the library by December 4, 2020.
