A book club for grown-ups who love kid lit!
Meets every third Wednesday 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.
A great discussion of the multi-faceted Brian Selznick last week! We’ll meet again on Wednesday, April 19th, at 5pm at the Red Wing Public Library.
In April, we will look at the current nominees for Minnesota’s Children’s Choice awards: the venerable (first given in 1980!) Maud Hart Lovelace Award for readers grade 3-8, and the much newer Star of the North Picture Book Award for readers Kindergarten through Grade 2 (although older readers are welcome to participate). Copies of nominees are available at the public library and depending upon availability, at the school libraries as well. The actual awards will be presented later in April, so come prepared to lobby for your favorites! (Not that any of us are in the right age bracket to vote–still…)
Good Reading, Everyone!
