Story Picnic with Yvonne Cassidy
A Family Workshop

Saturday, May 7 | 11 AM – 2 PM

Ages 8

Led by Irish novelist and IAC instructor Yvonne Cassidy, parents and children will participate in a warm, rich, and meaningful family workshop creating, sharing, and binding an original story, focusing individually on a favorite memory or event. All stories will be shared over a storytelling picnic, and then illustrated by each parent-child pair. Bring your mom, dad, sibling, grandparent, aunt, uncle - whoever is family to you - and come away with a magical book to share with friends old and new.
