San Rafael - A group of enthusiastic young writers will share their own recently completed novels at Star Academy’s Annual Author Event hosted by Copperfield’s Books in downtown San Rafael. Fifty-nine students in grades 1-12 wrote and collaborated on 49 novels during the school year as part of National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), a program that provides structure, community, and encouragement to help people find their voices, achieve creative goals, and build new worlds—on and off the page. Star Academy, a San Rafael school for students with learning differences, has participated in the Young Writers program since 2009. From 2-4pm, join us to hear a group of Star students read from their novels. Several of the books will be for sale as well.
