    Author Guests

    Author guests have included a diverse line-up of established writers and illustrators alongside emerging talents, each with a unique perspective on books and writing. Other art related activities included a book-making workshop with the Center for Book Arts, cartooning with a graphic novelist, and an exploration into comic books.

    Field Trips

    Each week, we go on a couple of adventures around the city with our author guests.

    Camp will conclude with an informal performance of actors reading camp participants' writing.
