Our book club for 3rd and 4th graders kicks off in November with a discussion of the Newbery Medal winning book Flora and Ulysses: The Illuminated Adventures by Kate DiCamillo. The Night Owls Book Club meets on the second Monday of each month at 7:00 p.m to discuss a book and do crafts and other activities. Through the year we'll read some great books, make some fun crafts, watch a movie or two and maybe even have a pizza night! Books are always available at the desk in the Children's Room at the main library.
For November grab a copy of the comic-inspired Flora and Ulysses and join us to talk about it:
Flora, obsessed with superhero comics, immediately recognizes and gives her wholehearted support to a squirrel that, after a near-fatal brush with a vacuum cleaner, develops the ability to fly and type poetry. The 10-year-old hides her new friend from the certain disapproval of her self-absorbed, romance-writer mother, but it is on the woman's typewriter that Ulysses pours out his creations.
