This month, the Wednesday Morning Book Group will be discussing this year's Big Read, When the Emperor Was Divine. It is a marvelous, slim novel that paints the harshness of the Japanese internment camps of World War II with the delicate brushstrokes of a Japanese watercolor. The novel concerns a single California family's experiences from the time they are asked to pack up and report for relocation through their haunted return home. The narrative is an accumulation of quiet details that softly build up an indictment of the camps and the attitudes that led to them. Please join us at the APL for a lively discussion of this compelling book.

Kids of all ages (up to 14 years old) are invited to make an appointment to read to a certified therapy dog! Reading to a nonjudgmental, patient listener can give children the encouragement they need to improve their reading skills. The child’s confidence will grow in this relaxed environment.  

Kids read in 20 minute increments and the only 
requirement is that the child MUST be able to read (beginning readers are welcome). To make an appointment for your child, call the Children’s Room or email Mrs. Brown.
