Kids can learn how to write a ripper of a murder mystery from master of children’s suspense Bathurst author Paul Stafford at Lithgow Library Learning Centre on Thursday, January 23.

The free writing workshop at 2pm will be for children aged 7 to 14.

The Dead Bones Society is a writing group conducted by Paul Stafford using the Fossil and Mineral Museum in Bathurst.

While the original Dead Bones Society is for boys only, this special school holiday writing workshop is open to boys and girls and will be a great introduction to the activities of the Dead Bones Society.

With this year’s Summer Reading Challenge theme based around “investigation’’, the writing workshop will be centred on the theme of mystery.

Children interested in the writing workshop should register their interest by contacting the Lithgow Library Learning Centre on (02) 6352 9100.

Lithgow Mayor Maree Statham said: “Lithgow Library Learning Centre is providing a number of free holiday activities during January and this workshop will provide a fun and educational opportunity for children to explore their writing talent.’’

For more information on this activity and other school holiday activities contact the Lithgow Library Learning Centre on 63529100 or visit the library webpage at http://www.learningcentre.lithgow.com/.
