About Litworks:

Litowrks is a teen reading workshop where teens and adults can come and meet amazing authors. The workshop begins at 9 am and starts with an open author panel that allows everyone to hear about the authors and their writings, as well as ask questions. We move from Eisenhower to Ridgewood high school (rides will not be provided) where there will be pizza, soft drinks and water. After lunch the authors will have their own panels where everyone can go and listen to their works and ask even more questions. There will be 45 minutes for each of the three sessions. After all the sessions are through everyone will meet in the school library for an all author book signing session. At the book signing, you can also buy the books of your favorite authors and get them signed.

For more information about the authors and the workshop, go to: http://ridgewood.cyberschool.com/District/Department/98-Library/1928-Litworks.html
