TWISTED FAIRY TALES
Let your creativity emerge by "twisting" a classic fairy tale! Teens will choose a classic fairy tale to "twist" and will develop their story over the course of the summer reading program. Meeting June 12 & 26 and July 10 & 24, we will focus on a different literary element of fairy tales and discuss ways that they can change the story to fit their creative vision. A special opportunity to share or read the finished masterpieces will be determined towards the end of the program. How we meet will be dependent upon how many teens sign up. Please email the library if interested.
