Hockessin Library Young Writers Workshop: Book Launch 

October 29 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

Illustration: “Abigail” by Chinue

Celebrate the publication of  Abigail and The Underground Railroad! Students in grades 6 through 9 wrote and illustrated this hardcover book. During our 8-week Young Writers Workshop at the Hockessin Library, students created the story of Abigail, a slave, and Jacob, a slave owner’s son. The fictional story includes poems by participants, as prologue and epilogue. Students also collaborated on illustrations.

The events and characters are based on history. We read about underground railroad activity and conductors in northern Delaware. Guest speakers visited our workshops.

The celebration and book launch will be held at Hockessin Library, Monday, October 29, 2018 at 6:30 pm. Open to the public. Sponsored by New Castle County Libraries.

Young writers published a book about the Underground Railroad in northern Delaware
