We've taken a bit of an events hiatus over the past month, so as to re-charge our batteries for 2019. We're back on the trolley this coming week with our Middle Grade Book Club. On Tuesday, local author Rebecca Caprara is hosting our second Middle Grade Book Club. It's hard to overstate just how awesome of a job Rebecca did with this the first time around, and I have to sort of pinch myself to think of how lucky we all are to have her in our community.

If you have a middle-grade reader (typically 8-12 years old), you should encourage them to come this Tuesday at 6 pm. Rebecca is not only ready to talk about the book choice, Inside Out and Back Again by Thanha Lai, but also to talk to kids about what kind of books they like reading and help them on their writing projects. Last month she did a blackout poetry exercise.

This is the age where many kids either choose the path of being lifelong readers or drop reading altogether, except when forced. We want to help as many kids choose that first path, and coming to our Middle Grade Book Club with Rebecca is a great way to facilitate that love of reading.



After Tuesday, we have just three author events for the month, but all three are incredibly exciting. We'll talk about them more in next week's newsletter, but I'm bursting at the seams with excitement to welcome Karen M. McManus, Sarah Brannen (and launch her new book, Bear Needs Help!) and Brian Lies to the store (and to welcome back Sara Farizan, who has been one of our absolute favorite author guests to date).

Definitely stop in and ask us about these books and clubs this weekend, we'll happily talk your ear off about them!
FEBRUARY BOOK CLUB PICK:
The Proposal, by Jasmine Guillory

Review by Friday Fiction Book Club host, Kyra Wilson Cook

This month, we're reading The Proposal, which is a warm and sunny romp through the lives of beautiful young people thrust into a silly situation. The story starts with writer Nikole, who has been suffering through a Dodgers game she is attending with her boyfriend of five months and his gaggle of bros. Unexpectedly, he tells her to look up at the Jumbotron, where "will you marry me, Nicole" is on display, her face broadcast in the stadium and on national television. When she rightly refuses, it goes viral for all the right reasons. Not to worry--a gorgeous, sports car driving, chef-quality cooking, family-oriented doctor is going to swoop in for the rescue (and the rebound). Can Nik handle it? 

It's a bubbly book, filled with lively characters who will happily distract you from whatever wintry life you're living here in Massachusetts. Quick, accessible, and with moments of colorful wit, you'll enjoy this girlfriend getaway in the literary sunshine. This book is going to get a lot of attention in 2019. Wouldn't it be great if you are the first of your friends to read it?

Please join us on February 1st at 10 am for our Book Club discussion! Bring your coffee and we'll supply croissants!
