90 Second Newbery

Let’s make a movie! We'll be turning the Newbery Award honoree from 2016, The War that Saved my Life by Kimberley Brubaker Bradley into a 90 second flash movie. Children will act out scenes, create props, and have fun making a movie! Register for the program starts on May 31st and stop by the Information Services desk anytime after to pick up your very own copy of the book.

For children entering grades 4-8. We ask that participants try to commit to at least half of the sessions for filming purposes.

*Children will be given photo release forms prior to filming. Children who do not have these filled out can still participate, but they will not be on camera.

Note: If you are interested in joining this class, but the registration is closed please email Miss Ann at duffya@buckslib.org. We will check to see if all available spots are filled.
