Here’s a ripping yarn, courtesy of Edgar Rice Burroughs (his 1917 novel was titled “A Princess of Mars”) with a little help from the CGI masters at Walt Disney studios, a solid cast and fellow novelist Michael Chabon (who co-wrote the screenplay with director Andrew Stanton and Mark Andrews).

 

It’s a colorful mash-up of genres:  westerns, swords, togas science fiction and even pirate movies, all stuffed into a Hollywood blender and presented as a cheerful popcorn flick which I think most audiences will enjoy.

Pulitzer-winning Maine Author on Writing Childrens Books

Beginning on Saturday, April 14, Pulitzer Prize-winning Maine author Barbara Walsh will teach a two-part workshop entitled “Writing Children’s Books: How to Use Real Stories to Craft Compelling Tales.”

Walsh will discuss how to use real life or imagined stories, details, characters, and voices to craft compelling children’s books. Walsh’s book “Sammy in the Sky” was illustrated by Jamie Wyeth and is based on the death of her family dog told through her daughter’s voices. “Sammy in the Sky” sold out its first 10,000 copies in two weeks, and is now on its fourth printing.
 
Participants of the workshop will get hands-on information about how to develop their projects, and return for part-two of the workshop to learn about revising, refining, and rethinking their children’s book. 

The workshop is sponsored by the Maine Writers & Publishers Alliance (MWPA) and will be held from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the Curtis Memorial Library in Brunswick.
