About this event:

Children ages 9-13 are welcome to join our Tween Book Club! Book Club will meet virtually. In June we will read Among the Hidden by Margaret Peterson Haddix. Participants are welcome to bring suggestions for future books or genres to read together! Registration is required as space is limited. Register online and reserve a copy of the book of the month to keep. Pick up book either via curbside or in lobby pick-up.

In this dystopian classic, Luke Garner, a 12-year-old boy, lives on a farm with his mother, father, and two brothers. As a third child, Luke and his parents are in violation of a population law. Luke, like all third children, must spend his days hidden or away from public view, or face dire consequences. Among the Hidden explores themes of legality and morality, propaganda, and privilege as Luke comes to learn about the world he lives in and how to access his own agency to push back against the powers that be.~ from the Publisher
