About this event:
Children ages 9-13 are welcome to join our Homeschool Book Club! The club will meet monthly to discuss books from a variety of genres on the 4th Thursday of each month at 11 in the morning. Registration for book club meetings is required as space is limited. Register online and reserve a free copy of the book to borrow and pick up either via curbside or inside the library. Book Club will meet virtually via Zoom. After this meeting we will take a break from club for the summer and resume meeting in September!
In the attic of Candice’s late grandmother’s house she finds a letter addressed to her grandmother, which promises treasure to the city if the letter’s puzzle can be solved. Candice then learns that her grandmother’s efforts to do so years earlier cost her both her reputation and her job as the first African-American city manager in Lambert. Candice digs into the mystery along with Brandon, an 11-year-old neighbor who is being bullied. The two bookworms have just a few months to find the fortune and repair Candice’s grandmother’s legacy, and they come to discover how racism has poisoned the town over the years. It’s a gripping mystery, and the plot shifts smoothly between Candice’s present-day story and flashback sections that reveal Lambert’s history of injustice.- Publishers Weekly
