Every year the American Library Association chooses a children's book of outstanding literary quality to be awarded the Newbery Medal. At the Mock Newbery Book Discussions participants read 2012 books that have been receiving starred reviews and have a strong chance of winning the medal. If you are in grades 4-7, register at the Youth Services Desk to join us on Wednesday September 12 from 7 p.m. until 8 p.m. to discuss the book Kepler's Dream by Juliet Bell. In Kepler's Dream, Ella spends time with her eccentric grandmother in New Mexico while her mother undergoes cancer treatment. Soon Ella becomes involved in solving the disappearance of a rare book from her grandmother's amazing library. Pick up a copy of the book when you register.
