Please join us tonight at 7 p.m. for our monthly Caldecott Club, also known as our family book club. All ages are welcome as we spotlight 4-5 great, newly-published books that are eligible for the Caldecott Medal. Given annually by the American Library Association, the Caldecott Medal honors the best-illustrated book for ages birth through age 14, so we have a wide range of books to choose from! We'll read the books together on the big screen, discuss them and then vote on our favorite of the evening. Of course, there will be lemonade and cookies as well. No registration necessary for this hour-long program; just come and enjoy reading some wonderful new books.
Children's book author and illustrator Liz Pichon will discuss The Brilliant World of Tom Gates series, new to the U.S., though eight books in the series have been published in the U.K. This series will appeal to Diary of a Wimpy Kid series fans.
