The book of the month is Small Spaces by Katherine Arden.
After suffering a tragic loss, eleven-year-old Ollie only finds solace in books. So when she happens upon a crazed woman at the river threatening to throw a book into the water, Ollie doesn’t think–she just acts, stealing the book and running away. As she begins to read the slender volume, Ollie discovers a chilling story about a girl named Beth, the two brothers who both loved her, and a peculiar deal made with ‘the smiling man,’ a sinister specter who grants your most tightly held wish, but only for the ultimate price.
We meet one Wednesday evening of each month from 6:30-7:30pm to discuss the book selected. Candy and thought-provoking conversation will be served. All interested tweens are welcome. (Not young adults, not children — hence, TWEENagers in grades 5-7 or ages 10+.) Please ask for a copy of the current book at the front desk.
Register once and we’ll keep your name on until June. Non-resident friends are welcome.
