Youth author Jon Scieszka will be at the Harborview Center, 300 Cleveland St., on Wednesday at 9:30 a.m. to speak to elementary-age children about writing.
Scieszka uses humor to encourage the writing process. His works include fractured fairy tales such as The Stinky Cheese Man, Time Warp Trio, Math Curse and Your Mother Was a Neanderthal.
The free program is open to all, but groups of 10 or more should make reservations by calling the Clearwater Library at 462-6800, ext. 252.
