Our brand new Middle Grade Book Club (ages 8-13) begins on Saturday, October 14 at 3 PM! Our first read will be the brand new REFUGEE by Alan Gratz, acclaimed author of numerous award-winning historical fiction and other titles for young readers, including Prisoner 3087-B.

How it works: Purchase a copy of REFUGEE from the store for your middle grader. Middle grader reads the book! Come to the store on Saturday, October 14 at 3 PM for a book club discussion with fellow readers, facilitated by our Children’s Specialist Joy.

Parents are welcome as well, but the focus will be on letting our young readers discuss their opinions of the book and its story.

Light refreshments will be provided. Books available for purchase through the store.

More about REFUGEE: JOSEF is a Jewish boy living in 1930s Nazi Germany,. ISABEL is a Cuban girl in 1994. MAHMOUD is a Syrian boy in 2015. All three kids go on harrowing journeys in search of refuge. All will face unimaginable dangers -- from drownings to bombings to betrayals. But there is always the hope of tomorrow. And although Josef, Isabel, and Mahmoud are separated by continents and decades, shocking connections will tie their stories together in the end.
