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.
Great discussion last meeting! We covered a lot of ground, from literature from and/or about the 60’s, to new books from Minnesota authors and illustrators featured at last Saturday’s event, to books new to us that we’ve discovered.
We will next meet on Wednesday, October 25th at 5pm in the Community Room at the public library. (Note room change) We will discuss books from The Top Ten Challenged Books of 2016 list as found on the Banned Books Week Coalition home page. Thanks to Megan for identifying this list for us, as well as suggesting ALA’s page offering back lists of challenged books along with other resources.
See you then!
