Bookworms: Brown Girl Dreaming (ages 9-12) [Virtual Event, Library members only; RSVP Required]
April 24 @ 11 h 00 min - 12 h 00 min
A book club for 9-12-year-olds!
Celebrate poetry month by reading a novel-in-verse, Brown Girl Dreaming by Jacqueline Woodson, and then join in a discussion and related creative activities with other readers. The aim of this group is to foster discussion among our community of young readers, and to explore the work together. Bring along your book to have on hand for the meeting. Multiple copies of Brown Girl Dreaming are available in the Library’s collections.
During the meeting, each child will be expected to participate, and offer thoughts, and comments about the book.
This book group is intended for children who read independently, although parents are welcome to join. Parents and caregivers who participate alongside their children will be expected to have read the novel with their children.
This program requires advance registration, and is open to Library members. Each child attending must have their own Library card, or be covered by a family membership. Registered participants will be sent a link to join the event via Zoom. Parents and caregivers are responsible for connecting via the link provided, and for monitoring their children’s use of the internet.
