Young Authors’ Writing Camp to Hold Book Signing at Barnes & Noble

Students participating in the 14th annual Young Authors’ Writing Camp at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi will have a book signing and reception on Saturday, July 1 beginning at 2 p.m. at Barnes & Noble Booksellers, 5129 Blanche Moore Drive.

The writing camp was designed to provide elementary and middle school students with opportunities to expand their interest in writing and to experience writing as a fun and creative opportunity for self-expression and communication with others.  By the end of the camp, each student will have authored his or her own book and contributed to a class-generated publication and presentation. This 14th annual Young Authors’ camp included visits with poets and artists, naturalist walks, online publishing, and uses of technology in writing.
