Children's Writing Workshop with Dusti Bowling

Monday, October 15, 2018 - 6:00pm

Are you an aspiring writer? Come meet Dusti Bowling, author of Insignificant Events in the Life of a Cactus and 24 Hours in Nowhere, for a children’s writing workshop. During the workshop, you will learn the steps to build a story your readers won’t forget. Dig in and leave inspired for your next novel.

Dusti’s novels are heartwarming, funny adventures that are perfect for any reader. Her witty characters venture on memorable paths that inspire acceptance and love. Publishers Weekly reviewed Insignificant Events: "Bowling's sensitive and funny novel . . . demonstrates how negotiating others' discomfort can be one of the most challenging aspects of having a physical difference and how friendship can mitigate that discomfort. . . . [an] openhearted, empathic book.”

School Library Journal says that 24 Hours in Nowhere is "Reminiscent of Louis Sachar's Holes with its quirky characters and unique desert setting, this is a middle-grade read that will easily transport readers somewhere special."

The workshop is open all writers and ages – however designed for writers age 8 and up!
