  • Chat 'n Chew -Unstoppable by Tim Green (Grades 4-8)
    Thursday, January 15, 2015 - 4:00pm
    Youth Services Activity Room

    Join us for snacks and a chat about the book Unstoppable. If anyone understands the phrase 'tough luck,' it's Harrison. As a foster kid in a cruel home, he knows his dream of one day playing for the NFL is a long shot. Then Harrison's luck seems to change. He is brought into a new home with kind, loving parents--his new dad is even a football coach. Harrison's big build and his incredible determination quickly make him a star running back on the junior high school team. In no time, he's practically unstoppable. But Harrison's good luck can't last forever. Pick up a copy of the book at the Youth Services Desk.
