When Rivers Burned: The Earth Day Story

I've been busy preparing for the April launch of my latest book:
When Rivers Burned: The Earth Day Story

I wanted to let you know about a few of my upcoming events.
First, is a workshop for adults interested in writing for children:

Young at Art: Writing for a Young Audience
Date: Friday April 5 6:30-8 pm
Place: One Yoga Center
Foster Market Place
142A Danielson Pike
Foster, RI 02825
To register for this event, contact Ellen Schaeffer
Phone: 401-368-YOGA (9642)

Workshop Description:
During this 1 ½ hour session, we’ll explore a variety of avenues to writing for kids. We’ll do some writing exercises to see where you might fit best. We’ll talk about the elements of story and discuss where to find support for your writing. Participants are invited to share up to five pages of a previously written work. Please note that new writers and curious non-writers are certainly welcome.

As an "Author for Earth Day," I'll donate half my fee from this event to the RI Audubon Society and the Nature Conservancy

Next, my book launch: (Yay!)
Join Apprentice Shop Books as we celebrate the movement that changed the world with the release of
When Rivers Burned: The Earth Day Story

Book discussion, question and answer session, and light refreshments served throughout the afternoon.
