Come join a new children’s Reading Club. We’ll meet every other week and we’ll be reading from a group-selected book. In addition, we’ll be mixing it up–discussing favorite characters; adding a related craft, game or activity; reading from a kid-friendly theater script and adding costumes for role-playing fun. The goal of this group is to support young readers! Please register your child (or children ) to help with materials planning. The instructor for this program is Angela Ball.

Sydney Taylor Honor Award Winner Black Radishes is a suspenseful WWII/Holocaust story, in which one boy learns what it means to be Jewish and French at a time when everything is changing.
Gustave doesn’t want to move from the exciting city to the boring countryside, far from his cousin Jean-Paul and his best friend, the mischievous Marcel. But he has no choice. It is March of 1940, and Paris is not a safe place for Jews.
When Paris is captured by the Nazis, Gustave knows that Marcel, Jean-Paul, and their families must make it out of the occupied zone. And when he learns that his new friend Nicole works for the French Resistance, he comes up with a plan that just might work. But going into Occupied France is a risky thing to do when you are Jewish. And coming back alive? That is nearly impossible.

This program is free-of-charge and made possible through the efforts of the Kingston Public Library, the Duxbury Free Libray and the Duxbury Senior Center.
I am sorry to say that the lives of the Baudelaire orphans, Violet, Klaus and Sunny, are filled with bad luck and misery. All of the stories about these three children are unhappy and wretched, and the one you are holding may be the worst of them all.
If you haven’t got the stomach for a story that includes a hurricane, hungry leeches, cold cucumber soup and a doll named Pretty Penny, then this audio will probably fill you with despair.
