Choose Your Own Adventure Workshop and Live Reading With Author Katherine Factor
Sunday, September 22nd
Children and their caregivers are invited to join us on Sunday, September 22nd at 2pm for a very special reading of Choose Your Own Adventure: Spies: Mata Hari by Katherine Factor— an interactive middle grade story told from the perspective of the young Margaretha Zelle, an icon of the glamourous Belle Époque a century ago. Katherine will read while incorporating the groups’ choices to decide what happens right up until “The End”.
There will be a short Q&A after the reading, in which Katherine will discuss how her approach to writing a children’s book differed from writing poetry, as well as how it works to write a book with multiple storylines and endings.
Katherine Factor is a writer, editor, and educator. She has mentored young writers for decades. Awe, music, travel, and ancient cultures inspire her work—a likely outcome of avidly reading Choose Your Own Adventure books.
Sponsored by the Mendocino County Library and Friends of the Ukiah Valley Library.
