Make Your Own Time Capsule
February 29 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Come to Kwinana Library to celebrate Leap Day!
This is a creative and fun workshop run by author Tracey Dembo, where you will get to create your own time capsule. A present for your future self to open in four years on the next Leap Day in 2028. Tracey will also share about her inspiration for the workshop, her book ‘This Book is a Time Machine.’
Please note that this program is suitable for kids aged 6-10, and is a hands-on workshop. Photographs and videos may be taken of the event. Parents need to be in attendance (and are welcome to join in too!) but do not need to book a ticket
About the book
Hello there! Guess what? You are holding a real-life time machine! You don’t believe me? I’ll show you!
For a start, I wrote this blurb in the PAST. Yet, you are reading it in the PRESENT. And when you finish reading the blurb, it will be the FUTURE.
Lucinda – Tell them the bit about what happened when the past, present and future collided!
Tracey – Shhh! The blurb isn’t meant to give away the whole story!
Lucinda –But that’s the best part!
Tracey – You reckon?
Lucinda –Why don’t you let them decide?
Well, what are you waiting for? Take a look!
Dinosaur – I thought the dinosaurs were the best part …
Join Author Tracey Dembo and Illustrator Lucinda Gifford in this riotously fun and unique exploration of time. They explain the concepts of the past, present and future through their creative process in constructing a book.
