Youth book reading series begins in Washington
Washington — What better way to celebrate reading than by combining a lively book discussion with a special meal?
This unique weaving of tale and table highlights the Gibbs Library Youth Book Reading Series.
The first meeting is Saturday, April 6, at 5:30 p.m. The book to be discussed is "Navigating Early," by Clair Vanderpool. The book is an odyssey-like adventure of two boys' incredible quest on the Appalachian Trail where they deal with pirates, buried secrets, and extraordinary encounters. The boys meet in a Maine boarding school.
Kate and Nick Nichols will prepare a nutrious meal for the readers that reflects the journey along the trail. The Nichols read the book carefully and then create a meal that reflects the era, the characters and the plotline.
The reading series is open to fourth-grade readers and older. To participate, books are available at the library on Kindles or in hardcover. Participation is free.
The discussion group will continue with this year’s Newbery Award winning book," Only One Ivan," by Katherine Applegate on May 6, at 5:30 p.m. and a discussion of " Dodger," by Terry Pratchett on June 1.
Gibbs Library is located at 40 Old Union Road, Washington. For more information, call 845-2663.
