Great Reads For Girls Mother/Daughter Book Club

Join us for lively discussions, activities, friendship and fun!

  • For girls ages 8-12 accompanied by mom or another caring adult.
  • No younger siblings please
    • Registration forms for the event and copies of the books will be available at the library front desk about one month prior to each event (registration is required).
  • No younger siblings please.
  • Participating in a book club can be a rewarding experience for parents and children. Sharing quality time with each other through reading provides the opportunity for parents to develop a true bond with their children by sharing ideas about the books’ contents and messages, while providing a safe environment for children to share thoughts, fears, or problems. They also have the opportunity to hear ideas and opinions of their peers.

Love, Ruby Lavender

Thursday, April 14 at 7 pm

The group will discuss Love, Lavender by Deborah Wiles: Ruby and her grandmother, Miss Eula, are a pretty good team.  What other  duo could successfully drive the getaway car for chickens rescued from a journey to the slaughterhouse, paint a whole house pink, and operate their own personal secret-letter post office?
So, when Miss Eula leaves for Hawaii to visit her new grandbaby, Ruby is sure that she will have a lonely, empty, horrible summer.   What happens instead? She makes a new friend, saves the school play, writes plenty of letters to her grandmother . . . and finally learns to stop blaming herself for her grandfather’s death. Not too bad, for a nine-year-old.
