Celebrating Sèvres, Our French Sister City Book Discussion
Mount Prospect Public Library, Monday, July 11 at 7pm
As part of our Celebrating Sèvres: Our French Sister City week-long event, you are invited to join in a book discussion of Antione Laurain’s The President's Hat/Le Chapeau de Mitterand. When French President François Mitterrand leaves his hat behind in a restaurant, a Parisian accountant decides to keep it. It's a perfect fit, and as he leaves the restaurant the accountant begins to feel . . . different. Has he unwittingly discovered the secret of supreme power?

The discussion will be led by a former Prospect High School French teacher and member of Alliance Française of the North Shore.

Wheaton Public Library, Friday, July 15 at 3pm
Grades 6-12

Join us for a discussion of Boy 21, a 2017 Abraham Lincoln nominee and Freshman Summer Reading choice for Wheaton Warrenville South. Finley, an unnaturally quiet boy who is the only white player on his high school's varsity basketball team, lives in a dismal Pennsylvania town that is ruled by the Irish mob, and when his coach asks him to mentor a troubled African American student who has transferred there from an elite private school in California, he finds that they have a lot in common in spite of their apparent differences. Snacks provided!
