Talk about learning from the best! Kevin Sylvester is the author/ illustrator of more than 30 books, many of them award winners. His 2021 title, The Fabulous Zed Watson!, was called “completely irresistible” by Quill and Quire and his latest, Apartment 713, promises to be just as riveting. Who better to teach Middle Graders about the joys of writing than someone who has entertained that age group for decades? In an interactive masterclass, Sylvester will take kids through a series of exercises that help their writing and illustration. Fun, engaging, and creative, this is an opportunity for students to understand more about how to tell stories with words and shapes—and how to really let their imaginations run wild! Grades 4–7.
