Virtual Author Visit Offerings:
The 'Super-Nose Effect': Writing & Creativity Workshop
What makes a story shine? Unique characters, of course. The main character of my books, Saralee Siegel, lives in a restaurant and celebrates the Jewish holidays with her family and friends. But Saralee isn't an ordinary girl. She has an unusual ability- a SUPER-NOSE! In this session, I will share with you my journey to bring Saralee to life. Then it will be time for you to create your own character with a unique super-power or ability. Maybe your character can shoot lava out of their hands? Maybe they can turn into a sparkly unicorn? No matter what your character can do, we’ll definitely put our brains to the test and have lots of fun!
Writing Jewish Books: Judaism and Identity in Children's Literature
In this interactive presentation, my goal is to inspire the next generation of Jewish authors to write and publish their stories. First I will share my journey to become a children's author and the role Judaism plays in my creative life. We will address why it's important for Jewish children to see themselves reflected positively in contemporary literature. Then I will share with you my process to turn an idea into a real book. Where do my ideas come from? How do I revise my stories? Who illustrates the book... and MORE!
