Alyssa Satin Capucilli is the award-winning author of the best-selling BISCUIT series which has now sold over 28 million copies and is currently touring as a musical production across the US. Her other work includes the Katy Duck series, picture books and poetry, as well as the non-fiction My First series used for writing “how-to” books with our youngest writers. Believing that we are all writers with stories to tell and to share, the creation of a book from inception through publication is explored through a highly interactive presentation. Gathering ideas, weaving together words, and developing a world for characters to live in are all explored in a fun and accessible program that is appropriately tailored for both intimate and large groups. Students, even the youngest, are encouraged to engage in the writing process with the author and to explore how our most beloved characters are invented. Ms. Capucilli is delighted to present writing workshops for all grade levels. Workshops for staff development are available as well.
