Dragon Girls – Fall 2021

GIRLS IN GRADES 5–6: Dragon Girls Club provides opportunities for girls to share stories and experiences in a safe, creative atmosphere including craft making, activities, and fun. Dragons can be symbolic of amazing strength, deep magic, and creativity. This club will empower girls through self-expression using reading, writing, and poetry. We will read and discuss various books of fiction and poetry that feature strong girls who can take care of themselves. Our protagonists will actually tame dragons, some real and some metaphorical. Girls will write poems and stories to express their own unique and fantastic selves.

Led by poet Carole Johnston, former school library media specialist for grades K–8 and former creative writing instructor for the SCAPA program at Lafayette High School.

Please note: Since our Fall catalog was printed, Kentucky’s number of COVID-19 cases has grown exponentially. Therefore the Center decided to start all October classes online for the safety and health of our community. Dragon Girls will meet online via Zoom.
