Authors Everywhere
This is a Youtube Channel created and run by children's book writers and illustrators.

On this channel, you'll find workshops, readings, activities, art projects, writing games, writing advice, and more:

Winter Reading Teen Virtual Art Exhibit

Our lives have changed in so many ways because of COVID-19. School is online and most special events have all been canceled or postponed indefinitely. We are all coping with COVID-19 in different ways. We are accepting submissions of teen artwork throughout the entire Winter Reading Program (Jan. 11 - Feb. 20). EMAIL your artwork to Angela at arovatti-leonard@cwmars.org OR put it in the Book Return at any of the Montague Public Libraries. Creating art and expressing our feelings through art can help us cope.
