You don't need any artist ability to do this self portrait.  You will get a kit to make a cool "looking glass" border, and a canvas to use for your portrait.  You can use any media (printing or painting or drawing or collage or ???) to make a fun picture of who you are on the inside (not necessarily what you actually look like).  Let's have fun thinking outside the box on this art project!

This is a take and make craft, so to register you need to email teens@sbpl.info.  There will be a limited number of kits available.  Everyone is encouraged to submit pictures of the completed projects for sharing to the teen Instagram account.    All who have received a kit will be emailed the zoom link to attend the event at least a week before.

Alchemy of Genres: Magic & Robots & Weres, Oh My!  Is a podcast all about speculative fiction in books, tv and movies.  It will also touch on genres that aren't technically speculative but that intersect constantly with them; like romance and mystery/suspense novels (think robot detective or clone serial killer)

This podcast will be on mostly adult titles, but may also use YA titles (as there are some amazing ones out there).  This podcast goes out twice a month; feedback encouraged via email, or on the accompanying blog.  Subscribe on Spotify or other podcast servers!
