starsscatteredThis is not your average book club, and these are not your average books.  Come to Nutmeg Book Club to discuss a different nominee each week for the 2023 Nutmeg Book Award Intermediate Level (Connecticut’s children’s choice book award for grades 4-6).  After discussion, see if you know your stuff with a trivia/bingo game from the book, followed by a creative and fun activity.  Thursdays, 2:00-3:30pm.  Register for each session separately.  Please read as much of the book as you can before the program so you’re prepared to share what you thought of the book and play games with us.  The library has multiple copies of all of the Nutmeg nominees available to check out with your library card.

On August 18th, we’ll be doing an activity and talking about When Stars are Scattered, a graphic novel by Victoria Jamieson & Omar Mohamed.  Omar and Hassan live in a refugee camp.  Hassan is nonverbal and relies on Omar for everything.  When Omar has the chance to attend school, he knows that it will change both of their lives.  But to do this, Omar has to leave Hassan at camp every day.  Can they bear being apart in order to improve their futures?  Based on a true story.

You won’t want to miss this great program.  Register below.
