Join our book club just for tweens. We'll chat about this month's book and enjoy a snack break! This month's book is Anything But Typical by Nora Raleigh Baskin:

Jason Blake is an autistic 12-year-old living in a neurotypical world. Most days it's just a matter of time before something goes wrong. But Jason finds a glimmer of understanding when he comes across PhoenixBird, who posts stories to the same online site as he does. Jason can be himself when he writes and he thinks that PhoneixBird could be his first real friend. But as desperate as Jason is to meet her, he's terrified that if they do meet, Rebecca wil only see his autism and not who Jason really is. 

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

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. In his presentations, Dr. Hughes focuses on the reasons for meditating and how it relates to everyday life, the theory of meditation, and the many benefits meditation brings. Ten minutes before the close of his program, he gives his audience an opportunity to meditate using a simple, powerful technique called Jyoti meditation. Dr. Hughes has presented programs and workshops at hospitals, health expos, libraries, bookstores, businesses, schools and colleges around New England. He has been a student of meditation for over thirty years.

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.
