justlikejackieThis 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 4th, we’ll be doing baseball-themed games, making our own baseball cards, and talking about Just Like Jackie, a novel by Lindsey Stoddard.  Robinson Hart tries to be like the man she is named after, Jackie Robinson, but it is almost impossible to keep it together at home and school.  Caring for her grandpa is becoming more difficult as his memory fades, and now she is stuck with her nemesis in group guidance.

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