The Steampunk genre brings Victorian style and science fiction together for a style of writing and subculture popular with many readers.
And Kiona Millirons has taken her love of art and Steampunk and combined them into a passion for designing Steampunk jewelry and accessories. She will share many of her ideas and methods with teens as part of this year’s Summer Reading Program. She will be at the Newcastle Public Library at 2 p.m. Friday, June 21.
Participants also will learn a little more about the Steampunk movement itself.
“In all the classes I do I always try to tie in the history part of it,” Millirons said.
The items in Steampunk designs tend to be metallic and based on the era’s tradition of steam-powered machinery, and Millirons’ creations bring that sort of general look, even though each item is truly a unique creation.
Registration is required to attend and may be completed at the library or by calling 387-5076.
