For the past two years Author Thea Fielding-Lowe has hosted Santa’s Book Workshop, a holiday book fair bringing the joy of reading to Woonsocket’s youth. This book fair was created to 1) celebrate the season 2) support local authors, and 3) increase child literacy.
Santa’s Book Workshop is a book fair that hosts local authors, arts and crafts, gift giveaways, and storytelling.
Eight to ten local authors representing various genres will be given the opportunity to set up tables displaying their books and other book-related items for sale. Families will be able to walk to each table, meet the author and purchase their book.
An arts and craft table will be available for preschool and elementary school-aged kids. Youth will be able to write a letter to Santa, create snowflakes or ornaments, color pages, and much more.
200 gift bags made up of candy, crayons, activities books, and other small holiday toys will be distributed to youth.
Funds and book donations from this event are used to maintain the little free library found in Bull Dog Park located in Woonsocket. This library benefits youth from ages 6 to 18 years old.
Navigant Credit Union has generously agreed to provide half of the funds as long as Thea raises the remainder funds.
