Jean Alicia Elster, author of the book The Colored Car is the special guest speaker. The event includes fun breakout sessions for children to develop their writing and reading skills, and for adults to learn tips for supporting their children's literacy development.
Children participate in three sessions for 30 minutes per session, so please register each child participant for 3 separate sessions (A, B and C). See below for descriptions of sessions.
Adults attend a special session designed to support children's reading and writing development, but there is no need to make a selection.
Please note that session capacity is limited, so early registration is recommended. Registration for YAF 2018 will be open from Oct. 14, 2019 at 8:00 A.M.
