51Jf9XmJUsLMonday November 3, 2014
6:00 PM until 7:00 PM

The assigned reading for this program is Star Jumper: Journal of a Cardboard Genius by Frank Asch.  We plan to be making things from our own imaginations, so feel free to send your child with some cardboard boxes if you have some to spare.

This group is for students in grades 2 and 3 only.  Please note that, in order to help me to plan materials and snacks,  you will need to register them for each session that they can attend. If s/he cannot attend this month, or at any other time, extra copies of out books can be found in the J Fic section of our library which is located just outside of the Children’s Room.

This month’s selection is The Tender Bar by J. R. Moehringer

“J.R. Moehringer grew up listening for a voice: It was the sound of his missing father, a disc jockey who disappeared before J.R. spoke his first words. As a boy, J.R. would press his ear to a clock radio, straining to hear in that resonant voice the secrets of masculinity, and the keys to his own identity. J.R.’s mother was his world, his anchor, but he needed something else, something more, something he couldn’t name. So he turned to the bar on the corner, a grand old New York saloon that was a sanctuary for all types of men — cops and poets, actors and lawyers, gamblers and stumblebums.” Publisher Description

Copies are available at the Main Desk. Newcomers always welcome.
