misc_kidsreading1 Teen Summer Reading Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
    Contact: Colleen LeComte   401-847-8720 x206   clecomte@newportlibraryri.org
   

Unmask!, a summer reading adventure for “teens only” offers prizes for reading, theme related activities, movies and more.  Registration opens Monday, June 29th and continues through Monday, August 10th. The goal for completion is to complete 6 books or 1200 pages.  Activities and contests, running from Monday, July 6th through Thursday, August 13th, are part of the fun and a great way to earn additional chances on prizes.  On-line activities are available for teens that are busy working or traveling this summer and cannot visit the library in person.  All teens that register for the program will receive a free Gulls game ticket for July 15th (their Fanatic Reader Night) and be eligible for our grand prize drawing: A NEW KINDLE FIRE HD! Other additional prizes for gift certificates to local merchants will also be awarded - current sponsors are Via Via Pizza, Ryan Family Amusements, and Southwick Zoo. We will update the list as more sponsors join!

Details and registration are available on-line at tinyurl.com/npltsrp or in the library.  Follow the library on Facebook, Twitter (@NewportLib) or Instagram (NPTYA) for event announcements and updates.  Teen librarians can be reached at nptya@newportlibraryri.org and 401-847-8720 ext. 206 to register or ask questions.  This program and all related activities are free and open to the public.

After graduating from Providence College with a degree in Secondary History Education, Eric moved to Japan for two years to teach English in a small suburb of Hiroshima.  

Upon his return to the states he has been involved with numerous educational organizations, teaching improv comedy as part of the TALL university program, and even helping to found the Providence Improv Guild- a group of teachers and improvisers dedicated to building the community of improv in Rhode Island.  

This summer he is performing as a member of the Rhode Island Summer Reading program, for which he takes a unique blend of improv and illustration to libraries all over the state.

Eric is also an accomplished illustrator, with three self-published comic books under his belt. He has also created many unique logos and illustrations for various Providence-based theater organizations.

Eric will teach you how to draw a comic superhero - who will you UNMASK?
