Look for this workshop
next season!

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to travel back in time? Well, you don’t have to track down Marty McFly and Doc Brown to do so—instead, join 826michigan as we learn more about 20th century U.S. history through pop culture. You will listen to rock and roll music, watch neat movie clips, and browse through swell magazine advertisements to get ideas about a time when your grandparents were kids. Next, you will brainstorm ideas inspired by these pieces about what your life would be like if you lived in the past. Finally, you will write a short story set in the past, with yourself as a main character.

Come see what it would be like to travel back in time without ever having to leave the comfort of your own backyard! (Or, close enough.)
