Nurture your soul with an afternoon of warm chai, tasty snacks, lively conversation, and creative expression.

Saturday, May 14, 2022

4:00pm - 6:00pm

Since 2020, we have lived with social isolation, virtual learning, and a reckoning of social injustices. These critical issues can be hard to understand, let alone explain to the children in our lives. That is, unless you find the perfect book to spark inspiration!

Among the impressive art of the Deborah Colton Art Gallery, join Children's Author Varsha Bajaj for an engaging chat and creative writing activity that will leave you inspired to create stories for and with the growing changemakers in your life. Children 8 and up are welcome to attend. Don't forget to bring your favorite writing journal and pens!
