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.
This past week we enjoyed a great discussion of what did (and didn’t) win awards this year. We were puzzled by both Caldecott and Newberry winners. I found this interesting article about what makes a good Newbery by Patricia Lee Gauch, just to give us some perspective. Still doesn’t explain this year’s decisions! And here are some extra links about the many various winners, which might also be enlightening.
We will meet Wednesday, March 21, at 5pm at the Red Wing Public Library to discuss the intermediate novel Giant Pumpkin Suite by Melanie Heuiser Hill. Check here for discussion questions and much more background about the book. Several of us own the book, and four copies are owned throughout the SELCO region.
Good Reading, Everyone!
