      Dec 19-20: LitWits® Hands-on Holiday Fun with Great Books

      Hands-on holiday fun with great books! Right around mid-December, we're betting you parents could use three hours of free time for lunch with a friend, or some shopping time, or a stroll in the woods, or a manicure, or whatever. AND, being the amazing parent that you are, you'll have the best time IF you know that your kids are: safe and happy with two teachers who adore them being read some wonderful wintery scenes from great books making gifts for relatives and friends listening to cheerful holiday music making new friends not with you at the moment We can help with all that! Just leave the kiddos with us from 11am-2pm for a couple of days, and we'll send them home with 4-6 gifts they've made, inspired by great books we've read to them.  Instructors: Becky and Jenny, sisters and LitWits founders. Jenny has a BA in English literature and an MFA in creative nonfiction and poetry writing. She’s been a K-6 teacher and a K-12 language arts tutor, and her scholarship, essays, and poems have appeared in several journals. Becky is a literature-based homeschool teacher and a journalism major who spent four years as a staff writer for The Register Pajaronian. Both Becky and Jenny are currently writing creative biographies of two fascinating Bay Area women of history.
