Join award-winning, Minnesota author Laura Purdie Salas during children’s storytime at the Cambridge Public Library on Wednesday, Sept. 19, starting at 10:30 a.m.
Salas has written more than 125 books for kids, including “Meet My Family!,” “If You Were the Moon,” “Water Can Be…” and “BookSpeak!” Growing up in Florida, she now lives and writes in Minnesota. She loves to get kids excited about reading and writing.
“When I taught 8th-grade, I wanted to make kids fall in love with reading and writing,” Salas says. “I still do. I use humor, stories about my writing journey, props, interactive reading, and group writing to engage kids. I like to make them think about our cool world and the power of reading and writing in new ways.”
East Central Regional Library also is excited to present Laura Purdie Salas at the Chisago Lakes Area Library on Monday, Sept. 24 at 10:30 a.m. and at the Pine City Public Library on Wednesday, Sept. 26 at 10 a.m.
This project was funded with money from Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
