Show, Tell, and Write

Remember when you were in first grade, and you brought a treasure to school to share in show 
 and tell? That was loads of fun, so why should such a time be available only for kids?

Welcome to show and tell for big people, with a twist. Join the fun at Show, Tell, Write
 presented by Patricia Charpentier each month in conjunction with Bookmark It, Orlando’s 
independent bookstore, and Infusion Tea, College Park’s award-winning tea and vegetarian 
cafe. This month, Show, Tell, Write will be on the fourth Tuesday of the month, July 26th. 
After July, the event will be held the third Tuesday of every month.

Come early and grab a tasty meal and cup of tea before the fun begins at 6:30 p.m. Bring in a
 memento or item from your past or present each month (or photos, if the objects are too large)
 that is meaningful and holds many memories. Then, take a few minutes to share the item with
 the group and tell its story and significance to you.

Then, after being given a bit of instruction, we’ll write for a few minutes about the object you
 brought in or some other story you’d like to tell. You’ll learn how to write vivid descriptions, 
convey sentiment, and detail the item’s history and importance. No previous writing experience
 is required for this fun, hands-on event.

Don’t want to talk about your treasure? No problem. Bring it with you anyway; come, listen,
 write, and be a part of the group.

Before you head home around 8:00 p.m., check out Bookmark It’s great selection of books on
 site in Infusion Tea, 1600 Edgewater Drive, Orlando, FL 32804.

I hope you’ll come and be a part of Show, Tell, Write.
