Weird Little Robots! A Writing Workshop with Carolyn Crimi

We have loved the work of Evanston-based writer Carolyn Crimi ever since we first saw one of her hilarious and creative works. In picture books like There Might Be Lobsters, Where's My Mummy, Boris and Bella, and Henry and The Buccaneer Bunnies, among others, Carolyn always knows how to draw kids and adults into her stories with humor and imagination.  This fall marks the debut of Carolyn's first book for chapter book readers, Weird Little Robots, and to celebrate, we've invited her to lead an activity/writing workshop for kids ages 7 - 11. Any time spent with Carolyn is a treat, and we know from seeing her in action at school visits that your kids are going to have a blast. 

Cost of the workshop is a $5.00 gift card or the purchase of a copy Weird Little Robots. Payment (or purchase) not due until the day of the event, but we do ask that you reserve your spot, as space is limited. Reservations by calling 847-446-8880, or emailing
