During his interrogation, the safe house he's being held in is attacked by brutal mercenaries, forcing rookie agent Matt Weston to take the infamous Frost on the run.

We had so much fun at our last altered books workshop- we are doing it again! Transform old books into your own personal story by painting, stamping, decoupage, tearing, cutting, and gluing! All materials will be provided though you may want to bring photos or mementos from home to personalize your piece. These recycled books are a great way to explore your creativity and create a lasting work of art. They make great gifts and scrapbooks! Join other teens in a relaxed, fun environment. See some examples from the May workshop on the Teen Blog. Please register online or by phone at (203)265-6754.
