Young Writers and Kelley Armstrong Fans: Don’t Miss This Event!

Story Planet invites young writers and fans of YA fiction to join us for an evening with Kelley Armstrong, author of urban fantasy series Darkness Rising. On March 6th at 6:30pm, Kelley will be visiting the Story Planet ITA to read from her novel The Gathering.  Following the reading, guests can take part in a question period.  This is a great chance for fans to discuss Darkness Rising with the author herself, and for young writers to chat with a bestselling author.

Reserving a spot is easy: just send an e-mail with your name (if you’re coming with a group, you can include their names too) to Story Planet’s Kaleigh Wisman.

Take part in our Q&A with Kelley Armstrong                                                                           Story Planet is looking for a few special fans to facilitate the question period during Kelley’s visit.  Facilitators will guide the Q&A by choosing whose turn it is to ask a question.  If you’re interested in taking on this volunteer role, we’d love to hear from you.

Join the Live Tweet                                                                                                                Can’t make it to the reading?  Story Planet will also be live tweeting the event.  If you have a special question for Kelley, tweet it to @StoryPlanetITA today!  We’ll be taking questions up until March 6th, when we’ll be live tweeting Kelley’s answers.  Join us on Twitter March 6th to read live tweets during the event!

Michelle Montenegro

The incredible Michelle inspires countless Story Planet students and reaches her 100th hour with us!

 

Michelle is an amazing and dedicated volunteer, spending twice a week with us in the after-school program, volunteering at the occasional Alpha workshop, and even volunteering in a local classroom.  She is patient, playful, and full of encouragement – we could not ask for more!  If you’re still not convinced she’s a treasure, here is what some Story Planet kids have to say about Michelle:

“Michelle is fun to talk to.” – Shanjai

“I like to play bananagrams with Michelle!  Thank you!” – Mithulaa

“She’s fun to draw with.” – David

“She’s really nice!” – Rosie

“[When I get to work] with Michelle, she reads the story for me and I like it and I like her!” – Joanne

Thank you for all you do, Michelle!
