WELCOME TO THE HVWC CALENDAR: home of all our upcoming readings, events and workshops. You can view by list or calendar (see right menu to choose). Click the colored tabs below to show only specific options. Our workshops run as multi-session series or one-day “intensives.” Note, we list the multi-session courses on the first day they meet only. The full dates of the session are described in the course descriptions. You would need to scroll back to the start date if you needed to enroll for something already underway. But do let us know if you want to join something in midstream since we need the blessing of the instructor. Questions? Email us.

Book Launch: The Baddest Wolf of All? (IN PERSON)

September 7 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Free – $10.00

We welcome local author David Sherrin to read from his new book The Baddest Wolf of All?. The picture book, most appropriate for ages 4-8, follows our favorite antagonist as he trains with the Evil Queen to learn to be even badder. When she gives him an apple to deliver to Snow White, will he live up to the “Bad” in his name?

After the reading, David will take questions in a lively Q&A about being a writer and the process of writing and publishing.

This event is suitable for families with children of all ages. The book will be available for purchase onsite directly from the author, who’ll be happy to sign it. A maximum of 70 tickets will be available. Tickets are free but donations are welcome (either at the checkout screen or in person at the event). This event will take place in person only at HVWC, which is located at the historic former station house of the Philipse Manor RR station in Sleepy Hollow, NY. There is ample parking on weekends.

DAVID SHERRIN is a social studies teacher at Scarsdale High School, the creator of the podcast “Conversations in World History,” and the author of Big Bad Wolf’s Yom Kippur and two other upcoming picture books. He was a NYC Master Teacher, the winner of the 2014 Robert H. Jackson National Award for Teaching Justice, and has recently been nominated for the 2023-24 National History Teacher of the Year award. He loves to think, talk, and write about history and to eat pretzels.
