Hello all! Many, many thanks to all of you who helped make our first year of LitWits such a big sucess. My sister Jenny and I have so loved working with such great kids, such fabulous books, and of course each other! What a dream, to be doing everything we love to do with people who make it so easy and fun. If you are interested in what we've been up to, check out our website for descriptions of our sensory immersion experiences and photos of kids having a blast with classic literature. We'll be holding our last spring workshop on June 9th - Heidi, by Johanna Spyri; there's still room, if you're interested -- then spending the summer getting ready for next fall.
The 2011/12 schedule has been posted on the website - wait 'till you see what great books we are going to explore next year! I am drooling (in a literary sort of way) just thinking about it! As much as we loved indulging in some of our personal childhood favorites last year, we've decided to broaden our definition of "classic" to include mid-twentieth-century books, a broader range of cultures and, by popular request, some workshops just for older kids.
We're always glad to hear from you, so please send us your thoughts, suggestions, recommendations, ideas and, most of all, your wonderful kids!
Hope to see you all soon,
