Family Bookmaking – Collage, Draw and Map Your Story
Saturday, March 14,
1 – 4 p.m.
Yuyi’s message to all of us is that we have stories to tell. Enjoy an afternoon of recording your own journeys of hope, resilience and strength in this bookmaking workshop with artist and educator Yuyi Morales. Through a combination of collage, writing and drawing record what is special to you and your family. Participants are encouraged to bring photos or artifacts to add to their books. RSVP required- limited space.
Made possible in part by a generous gift from Elephant Rock Foundation.
Yuyi Morales Weekend
In 1994, Yuyi Morales left her home in Xalapa, Mexico and came to the United States with her infant son, Kelly, leaving behind everything she owned. Speaking no English, she found hope at a local library- and went on to a successful career writing and illustrating award-winning children’s books.
