Budding young authors will have the chance to put their imagination on paper during Invent Your Own Story from 4 to 5 p.m. Wednesday, May 3, in the Storytime Room at the Iowa City Public Library.

Attendees will write the story they’ve been dying to tell, and then share it in a book also created at the event. This program is for students in kindergarten through second grade. Registration isn’t required and there’s no cost to attend.

Invent Your Own Story is co-sponsored by the Library and Prairie Lights Bookstore in celebration of Children’s Book Week. Children’s Book Week is the annual celebration of books for young people and the joy of reading. Established in 1919, it is the country’s longest-running national literacy initiative.
