Time: 10:00 am

Is there a story hiding inside you? Come on down to the Washington County Museum and learn how to pull that idea out, give it a shine, and put it on display for the world to see! Your story can be anything from a favorite childhood memory to pirate adventure to a cupcake mystery to your grandfather’s favorite tale. Bring it with you and Tonya, Raymond, Damien, and Heléna Macalino of The Macalino Authors will show you how to lay it out into the form of a story and make it into a book that you can share with friends and family as a gift when you go visiting this summer! In addition to the workshop, there will be a handful of hands-on activities for those of you who would like to drop in between 10am and 1pm on June 10th.
