Come and join Joseph Coelho for a spookily fun (and at times gruesome!) event as he introduces everyone to Zombierella, Frankenstiltskin, and Creeping Beauty in his world of Fairy Tales Gone Bad – mwahahaha! Children will delight as Joseph brings to life his outrageous characters and their dastardly deeds, and be inspired with the joy and magic of his tales as a poet and a writer. With the help of this master storyteller, children will have the confidence to take on their very own creative challenges and perhaps even become masterful storytellers themselves!
