Cinderblocks’ Fifth Grader Awed by Writers at EdmondsStoryTime

So many writers! Emma's chaperone reads from Secret Santa Club

So many writers! Emma’s chaperone, Kathy McMullen, reads from Secret Santa Club

Fifth grader Emma Mulberry did something new Sunday.  She went to EdmondsStoryTime at Café Louvre in downtown Edmonds.  Café Louvre was filled with writers.  Emma counted at least a dozen.  A lover of books, Emma looked on, beaming, while her chaperone, Kathy McMullen, shook hands with EdmondsStoryTime host Jeff Stilwell, was warmly greeted by nationally known storyteller Naomi Baltuck, and made acquaintance with several other writers.  She listened, rapt and silent, as four writers read from their work.  She didn’t even squirm when Ms. McMullen read Secret Santa Club, a story in which Emma reluctantly stars.

  1. It was a great event, and a pleasure to see you there. The Secret Santa Club sparked a very interesting discussion–touched a few nerves for many of us introverted writer-types who grew up on the outside looking in. It is a very good place from which to make observations.

    • Hi Naomi, Thanks for the feedback. While I’m at it, I want to get back to you about this Sun at EdmondsStoryTime. Yes. I’ll be there. Is it possible you could meet me there a little early and I could pick your brain about how to make the tag thing work for me?
