Books & Bites Book Club
Wednesday, December 15, 2:30pm
Fourth and fifth graders love our outdoor book club! In December, come join us to talk about the award-winning book Show Me a Sign by Anne Clare LeZotte. We’ll also have a snack and do a fun activity together. Participants can pick up a free copy of the book at the Library, while supplies last.
It's 1805 and Mary, who is deaf, lives happily in a community where nearly everyone can communicate in sign language. But recent events have delivered winds of change. Mary's brother died, leaving her family shattered. Tensions over land disputes are mounting between English settlers and the Wampanoag people. And a cunning young scientist has arrived, hoping to discover the origin of the island's prevalent deafness. His maniacal drive to find answers soon renders Mary a "live specimen" in a cruel experiment. Written by a deaf author and based upon a true story.
Fourth and fifth graders only. Sign up here.
