Kid's Book Group Reads The Bad Beginning for June 21st


'Kid's Book Group Reads "The Bad Beginning" for June 21, 2017
Book Bunch reads The Bad Beginning by Lemony Snicket for their meeting on Wednesday, June 21st.  Join the group at 4:00PM for a discussion of the book and a short activity. 

Copies of the book are available in the Young Readers' Room.

About the Book
Violet, Klaus, and Sunny Baudelaire are intelligent children. They are charming, and resourceful, and have pleasant facial features. Unfortunately, they are exceptionally unlucky.

In the first two books alone, the three youngsters encounter a greedy and repulsive villain, itchy clothing, a disastrous fire, a plot to steal their fortune, a lumpy bed, a deadly serpent, a large brass reading lamp, a long knife, and a terrible odor. 

In the tradition of great storytellers, from Dickens to Dahl, comes an exquisitely dark comedy that is both literary and irreverent, hilarious and deftly crafted. Never before has a tale of three likeable and unfortunate children been quite so enchanting, or quite so uproariously unhappy.

Tween Book Group Reads Heart of a Samurai for June 8th


Tween Book Group Reads "Heart of a Samurai" for June 8, 2017
Page Turners, our book group for tweens in grades 6-8, is reading Heart of a Samurai by Margi Preus for their get-together on Thursday, June 8th @ 2:30PM.  The group begins with an after school snack, followed by a discussion of the book, and a short activity.

Transportation is available from LMS via bus #3 at the regular dismissal time.

Copies of the book are available in the upper-level Teen area and the lower- level Young Readers’ Room.

About the Book
In 1841 a Japanese fishing vessel sinks. Its crew is forced to swim to a small, unknown island, where they are rescued by a passing American ship. Japan’s borders remain closed to all Western nations, so the crew sets off to America, learning English on the way.

Manjiro, a 14-year-old boy, is curious and eager to learn everything he can about this new culture. Eventually the captain adopts Manjiro and takes him to his home in New England. The boy lives there for some time and then heads to San Francisco to pan for gold. After many years, he makes it back to Japan, only to be imprisoned as an outsider. With his hard-won knowledge of the West, Manjiro is in a unique position to persuade the emperor to ease open the boundaries around Japan; he may even achieve his unlikely dream of becoming a samurai.
