Program Type:Book Clubs
About this event:
Children ages 9-13 are welcome to join our Homeschool Book Club! The club will meet to discuss books from a variety of genres on the 4th Thursday of each month at 11 in the morning. In January we will read Turtle in Paradise by Jennifer L. Holm. Registration for book club meetings is required as space is limited. Register online and reserve a copy of the book to borrow and pick up either via curbside or inside the library. Book Club will meet virtually via Zoom.
Eleven-year-old Turtle falls in with the Diaper Gang—her boy cousins Beans, Kermit and Buddy and their friends Ira and Pork Chop—when she is packed off to stay in her mother’s hometown of Key West because her housekeeper mother has a new job with a woman who doesn’t like kids. It’s 1935, and the enterprising boys offer baby care to exhausted mothers in exchange for candy because no one has any money to spare. - Kirkus Reviews
