Write-Away Productions Presents:  TWO FOR THE SHOW

Monday, October 22
7:00 pm @ The Richardson-Bretz Building

Mr. Stein and Mrs. Coons' "Two for the Show" program is unique and entertaining.  Mr. Rich Stein loves to write, especially for children, and he loves even more to share his work with them face to face.  Mr. Stein is a retired teacher/administrator who has visited hundreds of classrooms and read thousands of student-produced stories.  Mr. Stein loves sharing his work with students as well as hearing about their latest writing projects.

During his career in education, he taught English, speech, and theatre arts.  Thus, he brings a sense of drama to each visit.

Mrs. Coons draws key points made in Mr. Stein's presentation. These creative illustrations are presented to the attendees at the end of the show.

Sponsored by The Mercer County District Library - Friends of the Library.
