Sage is used to being the fastest runner, the quickest climber, and the strongest swimmer around. And she's also used to taking charge.

This program is intended for Tweens and Teens in grade 4 and up.

Want to read the book?  Copies are available at the Circulation Desk.

From Goodreads: August Pullman was born with a facial difference that, up until now, has prevented him from going to a mainstream school. Starting 5th grade at Beecher Prep, he wants nothing more than to be treated as an ordinary kid—but his new classmates can’t get past Auggie’s extraordinary face. WONDER, now a #1 New York Times bestseller and included on the Texas Bluebonnet Award master list, begins from Auggie’s point of view, but soon switches to include his classmates, his sister, her boyfriend, and others. These perspectives converge in a portrait of one community’s struggle with empathy, compassion, and acceptance. 

Wonder is rated PG.  You can check out this review here for more information on whether this film will be suitable for your Tween or Teen.

REGISTER TODAY!  (while the registration form only goes down to 6th grade, please comment in the notes if your child is in 4th or 5th grade instead)

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.

This month the Adult Book Club is reading You Will Know Me: A Novel by Megan Abbott

"How far will you go to achieve a dream? That's the question a celebrated coach poses to Katie and Eric Knox after he sees their daughter Devon, a gymnastics prodigy and Olympic hopeful, compete. For the Knoxes there are no limits, until a violent death rocks their close-knit gymnastics community and everything they have worked so hard for is suddenly at risk. As rumors swirl among the other parents, Katie tries frantically to hold her family together while also finding herself irresistibly drawn to the crime itself. What she uncovers about her daughter's fears, her own marriage, and herself forces Katie to consider whether there's any price she isn't willing to pay to achieve Devon's dream."

To check availability or place a hold, please see the catalog.  Copies of the book in various formats can also be picked up anytime at the circulation desk prior to the meeting.

This month the Adult Book Club is reading Elizabeth is Missing by Emma Healey

"In a heartbreakingly honest meditation on memory, identity, and aging, an elderly woman descending into dementia embarks on a desperate quest to find the best friend she believes has disappeared. Convinced Elizabeth is missing and in terrible danger, Maud's search for the truth will go back decades and have shattering consequences. As this singular obsession forms a cornerstone of Maud's rapidly dissolving present, the clues she discovers seem to lead to another unsolved disappearance: her sister, Sukey, who vanished shortly after World War II."

To check availability or place a hold, please see the catalog.  Copies of the book in various formats can also be picked up anytime at the circulation desk prior to the meeting.

This month the Adult Book Club is reading Neverhome by Hunt Laird

"She calls herself Ash, but that's not her real name. She is a farmer's faithful wife, but she has left her husband to don the uniform of a Union soldier in the Civil War. Neverhome tells the harrowing story of Ash Thompson during the battle for the South. Through bloodshed and hysteria and heartbreak, she becomes a hero, a folk legend, a madwoman and a traitor to the American cause. Laird Hunt's dazzling new novel throws a light on the adventurous women who chose to fight instead of stay behind. It is also a mystery story: why did Ash leave and her husband stay? Why can she not return? What will she have to go through to make it back home? In gorgeous prose, Hunt's rebellious young heroine fights her way through history, and back home to her husband, and finally into our hearts."

To check availability or place a hold, please see the catalog.  Copies of the book in various formats can also be picked up anytime at the circulation desk prior to the meeting.

    Contact: Jennie   508-624-6902   jsimopoulos@cwmars.org
   

The program, Dance Me a Story, is an interactive story time that introduces literature through movement, music, and imagination.  Designed for children ages 2-6 years old, each session embarks children on a musical adventure centered around a popular fairy tale.  Students are guided through the story using their bodies, voices, and minds to become a collaborating part the storytelling. We will gallop on horses to our castles, sing joyfully as we skip off to grandmother’s house, and of course, we will huff and puff as we blow the houses down! Dance Me A Story is a six-week program with each session developed around stories such as Jack and the Beanstalk, Hansel and Gretel, and the Three Little Pigs.

This month the Adult Book Club is reading I Liked My Life by Abby Fabiaschi.

"Maddy was a loving, devoted stay-at-home mother . . . until she committed suicide, which left her husband Brady and her teenage daughter Eve heartbroken and reeling, wondering how they can possibly continue without her. Maddy, however, isn't quite done with them. In an attempt to fulfill her family's needs, Maddy watches and meddles from beyond the grave, determined to find the perfect wife and mother to replace herself and heal her family. That's when she finds Rory: a free-spirited schoolteacher, who Maddy maneuvers into Eve's confidences, but who turns out to be harboring a tragedy of her own.."
