Reading & Family Art Workshop: The Day I Met My Shadow

November 4, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

On Saturday, November 4 at 11am, join the Hopewell Valley Arts Council and the Pennington Public Library for a shadow-themed morning. Local author, Melissa Brun, will read her recently published picture book, “The Day I Met My Shadow.” Then create your own personal shadow puppet theater from a combination of recycled new materials. This workshop is intended for pre-school aged children and up. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Adult assistance with the craft is preferred.

About the book: When a little boy goes out to play, he discovered something mysterious, which he can’t seem to get away from no matter how hard he tries.

About the author: Melissa Brun teaches preschool, owns a photography business, and lives in Pennington with her husband Dan, stepson Luke, and fur-kid Rocket.
