We're launching our first My First Book Club both to keep our younger guests reading through the summer and to give them their very first book club-style experience. Not necessarily designed as a classroom-style experience, the My First Book Club will be focused simply on creating a positive and fun social experience and getting young readers to talk about what they've read with their peers, focusing on their most and least favorite parts, as well as scratching the surface of their book selections to consider other messages and themes that the author might be conveying. Participants should arrive at the July meeting having finished Bed-Knob and Broomstick by Mary Norton. Although it's not necessary to have completed the book, guests should try to have read as much of it as possible to avoid the possibility of spoilers from other readers. Join us on Saturday, August 17th for a very special discussion of Freya & Zoose by Emily Butler where our young readers will be able to discuss the book with its author. Each meeting will start at 2:00 p.m. and we'll have cookies or some type of snacks for our readers!
