by

Join me at Changing Hands Bookstore in Tempe this Sunday in celebrating teachers, librarians, and educators and their committment to teaching!

P. E. A. C. H.

(Party for Educators’ Appreciation at Changing Hands)2-6pm Sunday, November 14

Teachers, librarians and educators — we want to thank you for your dedication to education and for making a difference in our community. Join us for two free workshops, an author reception, complimentary appetizers and beverages, a 20% storewide discount, our recommended Fall 2010 booklist, and raffle prizes.

2pm – WORKSHOP – CHRIS TAYLOR

GRANT WRITING

Author Chris Taylor helps teachers, administrators, librarians, parents and school volunteers discover new non-traditional means to fund classroom projects using the step-by-step processes detailed in her book, Granted! A Teacher’s Guide to Writing & Winning Classroom Grants. To reserve a space, please email stephanie.k@changinghands.com.

3pm – WORKSHOP – RAIMIE MANCH

TEACHING WRITING WITH PICTURE BOOKS

Raimie Manch shows educators how children can be taught to write using picture books as mentor texts. When reading picture books, children interpret and use pictures to develop a story’s characters, plot, tension, climax, and conclusion. Through encouraging their imaginations, teachers can inspire children — even those in ELL classes — to develop stories from pictures. Workshop is ideal for teachers of grades 1-6. To reserve a space, please email stephanie.k@changinghands.com.

4pm – AUTHOR RECEPTION

Meet some of your favorite local authors and get some books signed. Confirmed authors include: Tom Leveen (Party), Laurie Brooks (Selkie Girl), Kaleb Nation (Bran Hambric: The Specter Key), Angela Morrison (Sing Me to Sleep), Conrad Storad (Rattlesnake Rules), Jake Bell (Red Alert), illustrator Tanja Bauerle (The Adventures of Salt and Soap), and author-illustrators Chris Gall (Dinotrux) and Molly Idle (Nighty Night Baby Jesus). Afterwards, enjoy appetizers, wine, tea and sweets, check out our recommended Fall 2010 booklist, and win raffle prizes.

PLEASE RSVP – To reserve your space in either or both workshops, please contact Stephanie Kilgore at 480.730.0205.
