The Creative Works Showcase is a culminating event of the Common Reading Experience (CRE). Students may propose individual or group works inspired by or related to the theme from the 2014-2015 CRE book, Full Body Burden: Growing Up in the Nuclear Shadow of Rocky Flats. The purpose of the Showcase is to use an art form(s) to expand upon a book theme and express or communicate about it artistically in the selected verbal/nonverbal form so that others can appreciate or learn more about the theme/book.
