We all know that the kiddos are ecstatic for a nice long summer sojourn - but what about moms, dads and grandparents?
This workshop led by book and magazine author, Nicole Cannella, will lead participants on an exploration through personal essay of what summers past and present mean to them; what were and are their favorite scents, sounds and tastes? Which of those could be revisited with their favorite children or on their own this summer? What long and languid summer nights evoke magical memories and what exciting summer antics can they recall, or even better, recreate? This personal essay class will engage participants and inspire ice cream truck memories and fireworks fantasies.
This class will run from 7pm-9pm on Wednesday, June 12th and Thursday, June 13th.
