Thank you and Goodbye!

The first picture was taken Wednesday at the Performing Arts Center advertising for our reading. We handed out flyers and candy and talked to many people about ArtWorks and our reading.

The second picture was taken after our reading on Thursday evening at Harry W. Schwartz Bookshop on Downer! Two of the apprentices, Demetrius Cooper and Lawrence Frater, were not able to attend because of family vacation plans, but we had a very appreciative audience and everyone did a fantastic job! Books were signed, gifts given and received, refreshments shared, and promises given to stay in touch!

Thank you all for a wonderful eight weeks and keep us all posted as to your writing! Above all, keep writing!

Please Note:

Our book, Through the Eyes of Our Mirror, is available through ArtWorks for Milwaukee. Please contact Meghan Koven (donate@artworksformilwaukee) to have a copy sent to you. They are $10. In early September, these books should also be available at Schwartz Bookshop on Downer and at Woodland Pattern Book Center.

Hi everyone this is Savanna again this is our last week and it has been fun so I just want say bye and I hope you like what you see on our blog

week 8 for Lawrence Frater

This week has been the last week at "ArtWorksforMilwaukee." Everyone has been leaving and I might miss annoying everyone. NAHHH. They are all going to miss me more than I'm going to miss them because I always have family (ArtWorks WAS my family) so thus I conclude the last chapter of the "Lawrence Frater Story" and I hope to meet my new family at MHSA soon.

Final Good-bye from King of the Mil
