Join us for a special afternoon celebrating writer Sheila Agnew's tenacious, brave, and funny Evie Brooks character with a reading and creative writing workshop for children.

Evie is a likeable narrator, prone to making mistakes, yet genuinely caring about people even as she attempts to diffuse difficult situations with humor. In both novels, Evie has personal problems to cope with along the way, ranging from moving homes; the dynamics of family relationships; the changes of a friend becoming part of a couple; her own musings about her feelings for a boy; and more. In an interactive and enjoyable workshop, children will focus on the creation and building of their own characters.
