VB Reads...Cover to Cover Adventure: Youth Book Group
Village Books, Tuesday, September 9 at 4pm
Calling all kids! Cover to Cover Adventure is a book group for kids 8-12 years of age led by Hana of Village Books. We meet every second Tuesday of the month from 4-5pm in the Readings Gallery. When we get together, we examine and explore the story we have read through discussions, crafts, activities, and games. Don't miss out on the fun!

Reading encourages thinking and imagination, and the goal of Cover to Cover Adventure is to provide kids the opportunity to completely immerse themselves in the world of a book. This group takes a break during the summer holiday. The last meeting of the school year will take place in June, and we will pick back up again in September. Questions? Shoot an email to Hana at hana@villagebooks.com.

Kate Dicamillo - Leroy Ninker Saddles Up: Tales from Deckawoo Drive — at Takoma Park Library (MD)
Politics and Prose, Friday, August 29 at 7:30pm
Kate DiCamillo and Chris Van Dusen make a return to Deckawoo Drive, with a new story about one of Mercy Watson’s neighbors. Leroy Ninker has everything he needs to be a cowboy—lasso, boots, hat—except a horse. Luckily he meets Maybeline, a rather particular sort of horse, but once they learn each other’s eccentricities, it’s sure to be the beginning of a beautiful partnership. Ages 5 to 8.
