We bring paper and pencils, you bring yourself (and gently used or new children’s books to donate to The Children’s Book Bank). Terrible drawing and writing skills not only invited, but strongly encouraged. Get ready to laugh your butt off.

Our group consists of these members: Zoey Abbott ( Alison Farrell ( Kate Berube ( Deborah Hocking ( Tracy Subisak ( Lisa Mundorf ( If you are able, please bring a lightly used children’s book and we will deliver all donations to the Children’s Book Bank.
