Nobody Owens, known to his friends as Bod, is a normal boy. He would be completely normal if he didn't live in a sprawling graveyard, being raised and educated by ghosts, with a solitary guardian who belongs to neither the world of the living nor of the dead. There are dangers and adventures in the graveyard for a boy. But if Bod leaves the graveyard, then he will come under attack from the man Jack—who has already killed Bod's family... 

This club's book selections are intended for kids in grades 5-8.

Join him for an engaging and informative presentation.  No registration Required.

Brief Bio: Dr. Allan Hughes has that rare ability to connect immediately with his listeners. As a chiropractor, he uses meditation with his patients for stress relief. However his professional skills also include the performing arts in both theater and broadcast media, which enable him to present his topics in an engaging way, holding the attention of his audience.

Saiki Kusuo is a typical 16-year-old high school student… except he has psychic powers. He can use them to get whatever he wants, but he also knows everything that people are thinking. Everything. No surprises, no secrets, no normal human experiences. He’s kept his powers in check since childhood, but with the temptations of high school now on his mind, he’s bending the rules—and spoons.

Join our book club just for tweens. We'll chat about this month's book and enjoy a snack break! This month's books are Ghost and Patina by Jason Reynolds. Read one or both of these two books in the Track series.

Ghost. Lu. Patina. Sunny. Four kids from wildly different backgrounds with personalities that are explosive when they clash. But they are also four kids chosen for an elite middle school track team -- a team that could qualify them for the Junior Olympics if they can get their acts together. They all have a lot to lose, but they also have a lot to prove, not only to each other, but to themselves.

This club's book selections are intended for kids in grades 5-8.

Dan incorporates his video and musical talents to bring the environmental issues of our day in a documentary news style that inspires us to meet the people who are Caring for the Earth. In doing this video, he met and interviewed over 60 people.  Alan French is an Andover resident and was the founder, Chairman and Executive Director of the Bay Circuit Alliance, Inc. He’s here tonight to talk about the more than 25 years he was involved with this project and making it a reality.  There will be music, video, information about a trail that’s in your own backyard and time for questions.

We look forward to your joining us for this fun and informative event.
