AViD Author Visit: David Haynes

May 7
Wednesday 7:00 pm
David Haynes, A Star in the Face of the Sky.

Novelist David Haynes’ work explores the intersections of class, race, gender, and generational difference. He believes that interesting fiction most often occurs when writers trouble the artificial boundaries that are erected to separate individuals and cultures. Haynes is the author of seven critically acclaimed novels, including The Full Matilda, and five children's books. He is director of creative writing at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas.

Design your own world for a plant by making a terrarium at Central Library! A terrarium is like an aquarium, but for plants instead of fish. We will provide the basic supplies (plant, dirt, rocks, container, etc.) but feel free to bring in our own small objects to decorate your jar! This is a free program that is limited to 30 children, and does require pre-registration, so sign up now!
