Author Christopher Healy will be joining us by skype to answer questions about our book of the month:

The Hero's Guide to Saving Your Kingdom

"This is the fractured and funny saga of four Princes Charming, who really aren’t that charming, and four princesses, who are perfectly capable of saving themselves, thank you very much. Readers might not recognize the names Liam, Frederic, Duncan, and Gustav, but their partners Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, Snow White, and Rapunzel will obviously ring a bell, and imaginative first-time children’s novelist Healy places them all in neighboring kingdoms, provides when-boy-meets-girl backstories, and sets them on a quest to… do a lot of things, actually." (Review from Booklist)

This parent & child book club is for kids in grades 3-6 (or so) and their grown-ups on the last Monday of each month. Please register.

holiday_cornucopia 10:30 AM A Pilgrim Thanksgiving with Gary Hylander     Tell a Friend
   

The first Thanksgiving, as it came to be known, was a time of plenty after many months of hunger and starvation. That these settlers survived at all was a testament to the assistance they received from the local Wampanoags. Sometime in early fall, the Pilgrims of Plymouth Colony, along with Massasoit and ninety braves “entertained and feasted” together for three days. Just in time for the holiday, join us as history professor and lecturer Gary Hylander takes us back to a Pilgrim Thanksgiving.
