3:00 – 4:00 p.m. – Make a Super Hero Trading Card! 
Ever imagined being a superhero? Of course you have! Well, now’s your chance to make that dream real! Immortalize yourself on your own, personalized, superhero trading card. Design your own costume. Assign yourself some stats. Get down with some sweet, sweet powers. Be wild. Be creative. Be Super! Jennifer Chen celebrates the launch of her new YA book for kids, Super!, with this special hands-on event!

We asked Jennifer what folks can look forward to in her workshop.

Jennifer: It will be fun! I will be hosting a very hands-on and family-friendly hour. It’s a time to let your imagination go wild, design, draw, and chat about superheroes. And you’ll come out of it with something to take home and show off. The kids will love it. The adults too.
