Liesl Shurtliff: Mind Benders!

If you could time travel, where and when would you go? What would you do? What could you do? If you kill your grandmother (accidentally, of course!) will you still be born? In this presentation, using a super fun game-show format, Liesl will share fun facts about science, history, and her process of writing the adventurous time-travel trilogy, Time Castaways. She'll talk about how to research, source, and fact check, and how young readers can use these skills in their own schoolwork and everyday lives, as well as how to take real history and weave it with fiction while still keeping important facts intact. Includes Q&A.

Festival Testimonials

It was great to see children and adults alike interacting with the authors and illustrators.
Loved the experiences in the ARTery, loved the presentations about the craft of writing and publishing. Gorgeous venues and well-done festival. Well-staffed, very nice venues. Will come again next year from Minnesota – well worth it.
My favorite part was the enthusiasm instilled in my son for books and art! Awesome Day!
