The Massachusetts Children's Book Award (MCBA) Book Club at the Mashpee Public Library is for 4th through 6th graders who enjoy reading new books! We meet once a month and our next meeting is scheduled for February 13, 2020 from 4:30 to 5:30. Salem State University founded the Massachusetts Children's Book Award in 1975. Every year there are 25 nominated titles of recently published books, and children in grades 4 to 6 must read at least 5 titles in order to be eligible to vote for their favorite book.
This month we are reading Betty Before X, a fictionalized retelling of Betty Shabazz's middle school years in Detroit, a decade before she met her future husband, Malcolm X. This inspiring story of the activist's early years is told by her daughter, Ilyasah Shabazz and co-author Renée Watson. Space is limited and registration is required. Please call 508-539-1435 ext. 3001 or email email@example.com.
