Join Story Pirates for a workshop and performance! Kids are invited to take part in a Story Creation Zone, where a Story Pirates teaching artists leads group activities, reads passages from the book, Stuck in the Stone Age by Geoff Rodkey, with interaction with the kids, and then leads the group to write their own story.
There will be copies of Stuck in the Stone Age available for purchase in advance of the event but participants are not required to read it in order to take part.
About Stuck in the Stone Age:
Tom Edison (no, not that Tom Edison) is a hopeful janitor who dreams of becoming a scientist—and Dr. Morice is a shy scientist who dreams of making friends. When an accident at the lab sends them back in time to the stone age, Tom and Dr. Morice must work together to face down cavemen, saber-tooth tigers, and other B.C. hazards, with only one problem: Tom isn’t very good at science, and Dr. Morice isn’t very good with people.
A laugh-out-loud time-travel adventure, Stuck in the Stone Age is the first in a series of novels that double as an introduction to the basics of creative writing. With the help of Story Pirate Captain Rolo Vincent and the Story Creation Zone, kids can use this kid-generated sci-fi comedy as inspiration to create their OWN great stories!
About Story Pirates
The Story Pirates Changemakers is a nationally respected education and media organization, dually based in New York and Los Angeles. We turn kids' original stories into wild sketch comedy musicals featuring professional actors to show those kids just how amazing their ideas are. We believe that there is a powerful link between literacy and confident self-expression, so we haven’t stopped expanding since the day we started providing programming at a single Harlem elementary school in 2004.
