Teen Workshop: Telling Stories Through Art with Janeil Engelstad

Saturday, February 25, 1:00-3:00 p.m.

Stamps will be provided to send the finished postcard to that special someone in the mail. Ages 13-19; all materials provided, and no prior experience necessary.

Jessi Klein

Saturday, February 25, 7:30 p.m.

Jessi Klein is the Emmy and Peabody award–winning head writer and executive producer of Comedy Central’s critically acclaimed series Inside Amy Schumer. Growing up gawkish and a late bloomer, Jessi Klein never identified with the conventional standards of modern femininity. Instead she viewed herself as a tomboy who found her voice through comedy. In her outrageously funny and unapologetically candid breakout book, You’ll Grow Out of It, Klein compiles a perceptive collection of confessional essays that offer readers a relatable glimpse into exactly what it means to be a woman in today’s world.

Adam Gidwitz

Sunday, February 26, 3:00 p.m.

Adam Gidwitz, New York Times bestselling author of the Grimm trilogy, spent six years, including a year in Europe, researching his latest book, The Inquisitor’s Tale: Or, the Three Magical Children and Their Holy Dog. Their adventures take them through medieval France to escape prejudice and persecution and save precious and holy texts from being burned. They’re taken captive by knights and save the land from a farting dragon, culminating in a final showdown at Mont Saint-Michel. According to Kirkus Reviews, it is a “masterpiece of storytelling that is addictive and engrossing.”
