Join our Youth Writing Festival! This year our theme is food: elegant food, mouth-watering food, family food, fast food, food disasters, and all other things edible. Draw inspiration from your own food memories and from library programs featuring food writers, chefs, foodies, and—of course—people who love to eat.
We will provide weekly writing prompts to get your creativity (and saliva) flowing. You can also optionally submit to our book! All varieties of art and writing are welcome.
