Program Description

About this event:

Children ages 9-13 are welcome to join our Tween Book Club.  In November we will be reading The Girl and the Ghost by Hanna Alkaf. Registration is required as space is limited. Register online and reserve a copy of the book to borrow. Pick up either via curbside or in lobby pick-up. Book Club will meet via Zoom. Participants are welcome to bring suggestions for future books or genres to read together!

A Malaysian folk tale comes to life in this emotionally layered, chilling middle grade debut. Suraya is delighted when her witch grandmother gifts her a pelesit. She names her ghostly companion Pink, and the two quickly become inseparable. But Suraya doesn’t know that pelesits have a dark side—and when Pink’s shadows threaten to consume them both, they must find enough light to survive . . . before they are both lost to the darkness. - from the publisher
