Award-winning Indiana author, Sarah Gerkensmeyer, will present a creative writing program on April 7 at our Indy South location (10 W Hanna Avenue, Indianapolis). Discussion will revolve around the importance of a wild imagination, how messy ideas can be a good thing, a special book reading, group design of a silly character and storytelling based on that character. Program participants will have free writing and/or drawing time for expression of ideas, as well as time to share those ideas with the group.
This event is part of the Novel Conversations Speakers Program and is made possible by Indiana Humanities. The program is free and welcomes individuals of all abilities to join in the fun!
