"Class Dummies": Picture Book Workshop (7/28/15)

Tuesday, July 28th, 2-4 pm

Freight Depot Theater, Hubbard Hall

More than ten years ago, Maurice Sendak and Lynn Caponera created a project for Lynn’s son’s first grade class. They wanted kids to learn how books were made. They brought to the class 32-page blank books, aka “dummies,” and created a book with the class. They called the project “Class Dummies,” and in 2013 Caponera and Dona McAdams reintroduced Class Dummies to the school were it was first created.
