Larkspur - The Reading Together Book Groups discuss "The Year of Billy Miller" and "One Came Home"
Diesel, A Bookstore in Larkspur welcomes kids and parents to the store for our Reading Together Book Groups on Sunday, July 6th at 2pm and 4pm.
The first group, for kids aged 8-10, is reading The Year of Billy Miller by Kevin Henkes and will meet at 2pm. It might not be the best way to start the school year: with a lump on his head from an accident at the Jolly Green Giant Statue. But as seven-year-old Billy enters the second grade filled with worry, he soon discovers he has nothing to fear. This is his year, The Year of Billy Miller.
The second group, for kids aged 10-12, is reading One Came Home by Amy Timberlake and will meet at 4pm. In Wisconsin, 1871, young Georgie Burkhardt is known for two things: her uncanny aim with a rifle and her habit of speaking her mind. When her sister, who ran off with a group of “pigeoners” trailing the passenger pigeon migration, is believed dead, Georgie refuses to accept the facts and sets out to find her.
Reading Together is a special kind of book group designed to bring together kids and parents through, you guessed it, books! Once a month, we'll get together and discuss a book that you have each read.
Note to the kids: Your parents can read some boring stuff! Help them out with something good.
Note to the parents: This is a guilt-free way to read some fantastic, accessible, funny/action-packed/moving literature and share in your kids' reading adventures!

Celebrate National Children's Book Week at Books & Company Featuring: Amy Timberlake - author of One Came Home Wednesday, May 15 - 4:30 p.m. Author Talk & Signing Books & Company In the town of Placid, Wisconsin, in 1871, Georgie Burkhardt is known for two things: her uncanny aim with a rifle and her habit of speaking her mind plainly.
But when Georgie blurts out something she shouldn't, her older sister Agatha flees, running off with a pack of "pigeoners" trailing the passenger pigeon migration. And when the sheriff returns to town with an unidentifiable body, wearing Agatha's blue-green ball gown, everyone assumes the worst. Except Georgie. Refusing to believe the facts that are laid down (and coffined) before her, Georgie sets out on a journey to find her sister. She will track every last clue and shred of evidence to bring Agatha home. Yet even with resolute determination and her trusty Springfield single-shot, Georgie is not prepared for what she faces on the western frontier.
