Event Details

Just Add Sparkles: The Totally True Story of how a physical therapist, mom, and bookseller became the writer of books about magic, soccer, and Rube Goldberg.

Want to be a writer? Love to read? Or are you still looking for a book to love? In this lecture for all ages, Sarah Aronson will talk about her writing journey and how kindness, determination, and gusto helped her find a brand new voice as well as motivate schools all over the country to become wish granters (and happier readers and writers).

Ms. Aronson began writing for kids and teens when someone in an exercise class dared her to try. Since then, she has earned an MFA in Writing for Children and Young Adults from Vermont College of Fine Arts, and published three stand alone novels: Head Case, Beyond Lucky, and Believe. Her most recent books are part of a new young MG series, The Wish List, as well as a forthcoming picture book biography, Just Like Rube Goldberg, illustrated by Robert Neubecker.
