Hopefully you will have recovered enough from celebrating the Seahawks’ Super Bowl win on Sunday to attend the first in a series of author events at Madrona K-8 on Monday, February 2. Children’s author Ben Mikaelson will speak with students during the school day, and an event open to the public will run from 6:30-8:00 p.m. Mikaelson will discuss his experiences and his approach to writing, with an emphasis on the “soul of a story.” The Madrona Community Council will be providing free childcare during the event for children ages 3 to 12. This is a free event and registration is not required, so bring the whole family!
On February 2, Madrona K-8 will be hosting the first of its author series events at the school, featuring local award-winning children’s author Ben Mikaelson. During the school day, he will speak to 6th and 8th graders on “Becoming the Author of Your Life”, and lead a writing workshop for 3rd and 5th graders, followed by a public event that evening titled “Finding the Heart of the Story.” Stay tuned for more details about this event in the February issue of the Madrona News, and read more about Ben here!
