The Adventures of Auntie Apple tells the story of an entertaining, eccentric world traveler named Aunty Apple who regularly sends postcards to her nephew from some exotic, global adventure. “The Adventures of Auntie Apple” is a book that takes children away from their everyday life and pushes their creative imaginations to live vicariously through the illustrations and storyline.
Author Lauren Jolliffe will kick off the event by talk to young kids about her newest book, "The Adventures of Auntie Apple in Africa." After the reading, kids will have the chance to create their own story and take home a bound storybook. Families will also have the opportunity to purchase Jolliffe’s book and receive her personal autograph. With the purchase of each book the little reader will receive an actual postcard sent from the character Aunty Apple. Fee: $25

Storymakery elevates creativity across various levels for Girl Scouts. Whether you are a Daisy or a Cadette, our writers will work with your troops to show just how fun much story writing can be when kids are encouraged to let their imagination soar. During the event, all scouts will experience:
Young Author Workshop, which will include an interactive discussion with our writers on character and plot development. The level of creative writing instruction will vary by age group. For example, we practice improvisational story telling with our Daisy groups.
Story building - Our writers will lead the troops through individual or group story-building sessions. Our format will vary based on the age group.
Time at our Character and Publishing Studios, where kids design their own character and illustrations. They will also personalize their book with their own cover design, dedication, and author bio.
