The Portage Lake District Library will host the Copper Country Reading Council in collaboration with the Michigan Technological University English Education program for a North Woods Kids Awards Reception on Friday, January 19, from 4:00 – 5:00 p.m.
This event celebrates young Western UP writers and artists who expressed what they appreciate about Lake Superior using creative writing and visual art. Ann Arbor’s children’s author and musician, Kitty Donohoe, visited classrooms in October to work directly with students on this project, and by December 1, the kids had submitted their work to be judged and exhibited. A panel of judges made up of teachers and professors selected winning submissions, and all submissions are currently on exhibit through mid February at the Portage Lake District Library.
Everyone is invited to enjoy the exhibit, and refreshments will be served.
All library programs and events are free and everyone is welcome. For more information, please call the library at 482-4570.
