The Hickory Stick's Not-So-Secret Reader's Society Discusses The Penderwicks by Jeanne Birdsall
The Hickory Stick Bookshop, Monday, August 11 at 5pm
The Not-So-Secret Reader's Society (The Hickory Stick's children's book club) is suggested for ages 8-12 (and any parents who want to join!), but all are welcome to join this non-exclusive club! Monday, August 11th at 5PM We will be discussing The Penderwicks by Jeanne Birdsall ---------------------------------------- With over one million copies sold, this series of modern classics about the charming Penderwick family from National Book Award winner and New York Times bestseller Jeanne Birdsall is perfect for fans of Noel Streatfeild and Edward Eager. This summer the Penderwick sisters have a wonderful surprise: a holiday on the grounds of a beautiful estate called Arundel. Soon they are busy discovering the summertime magic of Arundel’s sprawling gardens, treasure-filled attic, tame rabbits, and the cook who makes the best gingerbread in Massachusetts. But the best discovery of all is Jeffrey Tifton, son of Arundel’s owner, who quickly proves to be the perfect companion for their adventures. The icy-hearted Mrs. Tifton is not as pleased with The Penderwicks as Jeffrey is, though, and warns the new friends to stay out of trouble. Which, of course, they will—won’t they? One thing’s for sure: it will be a summer The Penderwicks will never forget. Deliciously nostalgic and quaintly witty, this is a story as breezy and carefree as a summer day. ====================== Our book club is open to all and no registration is required, so please feel free to read the book and join in on the discussion! Questions? Please call 860-868-0525.
