Event has passed

CUSHING — Author, speaker, teacher and librarian Liza Gardner Walsh will open the door of the secret fairy house world for children and grownups alike at an interactive Fairy House Workshop on Sunday, Sept. 24, at 10 a.m., at the Cushing Public Library. This interactive program is free and open to the public.

Reading excerpts from her book, Fairy House Handbook, Gardner Walsh will share what a fairy house is, the rules of the forest, and tips on attracting fairies. This hands-on program builds on children’s innate knowledge of fairies, nature, and the fairy house world. Kids will create a collaborative fairy house, and learn how to make their own fairy house at home.

Gardner Walsh holds an MFA in writing from Vermont College. She has worked as a school librarian, preschool teacher, high school English teacher, writing tutor, and museum educator. Gardner Walsh wrote her first book, about haunted houses, in the third grade. She is the author of more than a dozen books, including Fairy House Handbook, Fairy Garden Handbook, Ghost Hunter’s Handbook, The Maine Coon Cat, and Treasure Hunter’s Handbook. Although her books tell different stories, at their heart, they are all about wonder, appreciation, and the joy of exploration and learning.
