A book club for grown-ups who love kid lit!
Meets every third Wednesday, September through April, from 5:00 – 6:00 PM in the Foot Room at the Red Wing Public Library.
Pictures & Prose is a book club for librarians, teachers, caregivers, parents, grandparents, or anyone who truly loves children’s and young adult literature. Each month we discuss one picture book and one middle grade or young adult book. Members are also welcome to share other titles recently read and loved, old or new.
Thanks to all who could join us last evening to provide a warm welcome to author Melanie Heuiser Hill as she joined us in our discussion of her book Giant Pumpkin Suite. A good time was had by all!
In April we will meet to discuss the nominees for this year’s Star of the North Picture Book Award and for the Maud Hart Lovelace Awards, Minnesota’s children’s choice awards. Copies are available from your school and public libraries. This year’s winners will likely not be announced by the day we meet, so I suggest we take a vote at our April meeting, and compare our choices to those of the children of Minnesota when we meet in May.
Good Reading, Everyone!
