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 this Tuesday, August 16th for 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.
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.
