July 30, 2015 Steampunk Party
A Subgenre of Science Fiction

July 30, 2015 Teen Event-"Steampunk Party"

 

Teen summer reading program participants had a lot of fun and learned a lot about the craft of writing at our first ever "Steampunk Party!"  Special guest and local author, Raven Bauer, treated the teens to an entertaining discussion of the craft of writing and explained the steampunk genre to the attendees.  The teens were treated to a special pizza lunch, completed a Steampunk inspired bookmark craft and watched "Hugo" one of a number of popular "Steampunk Films."

 

The teen winners of the "top two" reading incentive grand prizes were:

-Isaac K.-$ 75 Walmart giftcard (Thank you Walmart)

-Danielle M.-$ 50 Meijer gift card (Thank you Meijer)

 

And, in case you wondered...
