Middle Grade Book Club: Harbor Me

Monday, February 18th, 2019
6:15 pm - 7:00 pm
Teen Space

Are you in grades 6-8 and love to read? Then you should join our Middle Grade Book Club!

The Middle Grade Book Club meets on the third Monday of every month from 6:15-7pm.

For our February meeting we will be discussing Harbor Me by Jacqueline Woodson:

It all starts when six kids have to meet for a weekly chat—by themselves, with no adults to listen in. There, in the room they soon dub the ARTT Room (short for “A Room to Talk”), they discover it’s safe to talk about what’s bothering them—everything from Esteban’s father’s deportation and Haley’s father’s incarceration to Amari’s fears of racial profiling and Ashton’s adjustment to his changing family fortunes. When the six are together, they can express the feelings and fears they have to hide from the rest of the world. And together, they can grow braver and more ready for the rest of their lives

For a copy of the book, just check out the display in the Teen Space!
