Bookworms: “Echo” (ages 9-12)
January 23 @ 14 h 00 min - 15 h 00 min
The book club for 9-12-year-olds!
In January, we’ll be reading Echo by Pam Muñoz Ryan, which was a 2016 Newbery Honor Book.
About the book: Lost in the Black Forest, Otto meets three mysterious sisters and finds himself entwined in a prophecy, a promise, and a harmonica. Decades later three children, Friedrich in Germany, Mike in Pennsylvania, and Ivy in California find themselves caught up in the same thread of destiny in the darkest days of the twentieth century, struggling to keep their families intact, and tied together by the music of the same harmonica.
How Bookworms works: Sign-up HERE to reserve a spot for this book group. When we meet on 23 January, each participant will be expected to have finished the book, so that we can discuss the story in depth and create our own writing and artwork inspired by the story. This event is free for Library members, and registration is required.
Caregivers are expected to familiarize themselves with these guidelines so that we can provide a pleasant library environment for all patrons. If you have questions about events and/or collections for children and teens, please contact Children’s and Teens’ Services Manager Celeste Rhoads: email@example.com.
If you would like to support the Library and our services, you can donate here to help sustain this vital institution in its 100th year of service.
