2015 Author and Awards Evening
OELMA's Mix, Mash,Make and Maya!
Join us of for a full day of learning, sharing and celebration!
Saturday, October 3, 2015
OELMA has planned a special day to recognize our 2015 Award winners – highlighted by a visit by author Maya Van Wagenen! Maya is the 16 year-old author of the book Popular: Vintage Wisdom for a Modern Geek.
When she was eleven, her family moved to Brownsville, Texas, the setting of Popular. When not hunched over a desktop writing, Maya enjoys reading, British television, and chocolate. She now lives with her parents and two siblings in rural Georgia.
Meagan Warren, OELMA's READ ON Ohio recipient, will be collecting books for her charity, Books for Bedtime. All Ohio K-12 students may attend this event at no charge by bringing and donating a gently used book for Books for Bedtime. Adults who attend are encouraged to bring a book to donate as well.
