Turning Teens’ Adventures into Books and More with Author and Journalist Robin Farmer

Award-winning author and journalist Robin Farmer will lead a creative writing workshop and discussion for middle and high school youth at 11 a.m. on November 6, 2021. The program will be based on her 2020 novel, “Malcolm and Me,” ” which explores themes of faith, racism and coming of age in the 1970s that are partly autobiographical. Farmer, who originally is from Philadelphia and now lives in Richmond, Virginia, has written articles for the Washington Post, Richmond Magazine, Hartford Courant and the Richmond Times-Dispatch. During her presentation, she will show middle and high school students how they, too, can take real-life incidents and turn them into essays, books and even movie or television scripts!
